Abstract
Due to their light weight, high energy and high capacity, Li-ion batteries offer significant advantages for applications in space. To employ Li-ion batteries for use in space, high cycle and calendar life must be demonstrated, and this is the major objective of the present Phase I proposal. In this Phase I program, the objective to demonstrate that new Li-ion technology developed by MaxPower will meet Air Force and NASA requirements for LEO and GEO applications. Fundamental questions pertaining to the stability of materials and degradation reactions will be addressed. Overdischarge and overcharge are two mechanisms which can lead to significant degradation in energy and capacity retention, and solution of this potential problem is a major area to be addressed in the Phase program.
