Abstract
Yardney Technical Products, Inc. (Yardney) proposes a program to develop and test a high-performance, prismatic Lithium-ion battery, and demonstrate the manufacturing capability and reliability of the system for use in government, military and commercial satellite applications. This program will continue from the success of the Phase I program in developing suitable battery monitoring and control electronics for enhanced performance. The addition of monitoring, balancing and control electronics to this type of battery further enhances the reliability and safety of these systems. High capacity batteries, common in many satellite systems, will be developed for Low Earth Orbit (LEO) simulation testing. A modular design approach is presented in this effort to allow simple modification to the electronics and battery architecture to make it suitable for a wide range of satellite power needs. This program will demonstrate the viability of these battery systems for specialized satellites such as SIBRS High and Low and other Military applications, NASA Nanosats, and many commercial satellite clusters.
