Abstract
A RECENT BREAKTHROUGH IN THERMOPLASTIC MATERIALS TECHNOLOGY NOW PERMITS PRACTICAL, LIGHTWEIGHT, LOW VOLUME INTEGRATED STRUCTURE/ ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEMS TO BE FABRICATED. THESE MATERIALS WILL PERMIT SPACECRAFT WEIGHT AND VOLUME SAVINGS WHICH ARE NOT POSSIBLE WITH ANY OTHER SEPARATE STRUCTURE/SECONDARY BATTERY COMBINATION WHICH IS NOW UNDER CONSIDERATION. THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A PHASE I CONCEPT FEASIBILITY ANALYSIS AND MATERIAL LABORATORY DEMONSTRATION. PHASE II WILL DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY AND PAYOFFS OF A PROTOTYPE INTEGRATED "POWER STRUCTURE."
