Abstract
THE RECENT INTEREST IN SPACE-BASED WEAPONS AND SURVEILLANCE SYSTEMS HAS CREATED A VOID IN THE AREA OF POWER GENERATION, CONDITIONING, AND STORAGE. REQUIREMENTS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED FOR LEVELS OF ENERGY AND POWER NEVER SERIOUSLY ADDRESSED BEFORE. PINNACLE RESEARCH INSTITUTE PROPOSES A DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM WHICH ADDRESSES THE AREAS OF POWER CON-DITIONING AND ENERGY STORAGE THROUGH A PROPRIETARY DOUBLE LAYER CAPACITOR TECHNOLOGY. THIS TECHNOLOGY (THE PRI ULTRACAPACITOR) PROVIDES AN UNSURPASSED ENERGY DENSITY/POWER DENSITY COMBINATION. ITS PERFORMANCE PLACES IT AS A FUNTIONAL LINK BETWEEN BATTERIES AND CAPACITORS. THE PROGRAM PROPOSED HERE INVOLVES THE CONSTRUCTION OF A 200V, 1000 JOULE/POUND DEVICE TO BE TESTED UNDER REPRESENTATIVE PULSE DISCHARGE CONDITIONS. THIS IS THE FIRST STEP IN THE ULTIMATE DEVELOPMENT OF MULTI-KILOVOLT, HIGH ENERGY DENSITY CAPACITORS.
