Abstract
The need for a safe, lightweight, slim, conformal rechargeable for land warrior system is recognized. The proposed project addresses to investigate the feasibility of developing such a battery. A novel electrochemical couple is proposed for the development of a safe high specific energy lithium-ion battery system. The proposed anode material, which delivers 50% higher practical capacity than the state-of-the-art carbon anode materials, will be used to address both high specific energy and safety issues. Prototype 12 Ah cells will be developed and tested for delivered specific energy, cyclability, and safety characteristics. The developed cells will be used to build prototype 12 Ah, 16.8 V battery for land warrior application.
