In its on-going pursuit of lightweight, low-cost systems, the space industry has made significant investments in such as composite structures and high energy-density batteries. These individual technologies are now new spacecraft designs. Additional investment in these areas would yield only a few percent improvement over current performance. Faced with these nds revolutionary new concepts for spacecraft subsystems.ITN Energy Systems believes that this challenge can best be met using Multifunctional Structures, and to this end proposes herein the ing: 1. Thin-Film Solid-State Lithium Battery with High Energy Densy and Long Life 2. Thin-Film Battery Formed into ration, and Used as Structural Core in Composite Sandwich Panel. attery Terminals Connect to Flex-Circuit on MFS Composite Facesheets Our concept is for a lightweight, high energy-density power storage device which doubles as structural core in a composite sandwich panel. LaBaCore is particularly compatible with the Air Force's cecraft oach to achieving significant reductions in mass and volume.
