Abstract
THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A PROGRAM FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF SUPERIOR SEA WATER BATTERIES INCORPORATING RAPIDLY SOLIDIFIED AMORPHOUS PALLADIUM-SILICON CATHODES AND RAPIDLY SOLIDIFIED CRYSTALLINE ALUMINUM ALLOY ANODES. THE SEA WATERBATTERY PERFORMANCE WILL BE EVALUATED AND THE CORROSION CHARACTERISTICS OF THE ANODE WILL BE CORRELATED WITH THE MICROSTRUCTURE AND ALLOY COMPOSITION OF THE ANODE MATERIAL. THE ALLOY AND PROCESS CONDITION WILL BE OPTIMIZED TO DEMONSTRATE SUPERIOR SEA WATER BATTERY HAVING HIGHER OPEN CIRCUIT VOLTAGE AND SUPERIOR DISCHARGE CHARACTERISTICS. OPTIMUM BATTERY DESIGN WILL BE CARRIED OUT DURING PHASE II TO DEVELOP A PERMANENT CATHODE/REPLACABLE CARTRIDGE ANODE ALLOY STACK SEA WATER BATTERY.
