Abstract
To address the Navy JPEO JTRS need for a high-performance power energy device suitable for Military Software Defined Radio (SDR) systems, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a Novel Li-ion Battery with Microstructured Silicon Anode (NOLIMITS). This innovation will yield high-energy and high-power-density Li-ion batteries with long cycling and shelf life, which cannot be equaled by other technologies. Our preliminary analysis indicates that the system can achieve gravimetric energy density exceeding 1000 Wh/kg with a wide temperature range of-40C to 55C and is the most promising solution for completely satisfying the Navy JPEO JTRS ACAT I requirements for a high performance energy storage device. In Phase I, POC will create a proof-of-concept demonstration report for a selected technology set, including recommendations for optimal approaches. POC also will evaluate the relevant parameters of NOLIMITS using modeling and small subsystems demonstration. In Phase II, POC will finalize Phase I design concept and demonstrate the technology by testing a prototype to show its potential to meet Navy JPEO JTRS needs.
