Research Institution
The ballistic missile defense system (BMDS) has been established to protect the American people, their allies and troops deployed abroad. The mission capability and success of many of the elements comprising the BDMS are reliant on more efficient and capable portable power supplies. Aspen Aerogels proposes to develop next generation thermal insulation solutions specifically for use in primary reserve thermal battery applications. Optimization of material formulation and the utilization of a novel form-factor will allow for the development of an easily installable, highly flexible and durable insulation material with unsurpassed thermal performance. Utilization of these materials in thermal management applications will allow for more efficient thermal batteries with increased practical energy density, longer mission lifetimes and lower cost. Aerogel enhanced thermal batteries will thus have the potential to significantly augment many of the key elements currently being utilized in the BMDS.
