Abstract
Improvements in rechargeable battery energy, power and safety are required for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Program. Giner, Inc. will use its advanced lithium-ion hybrid cell chemistry, together with improvements in packaging designs to achieve the necessary energy and power densities. The trade-offs between specific power and specific energy will be examined experimentally to optimize electrode composition and design. Scalable performance will be demonstrated in cells over the temperature range of -40 to +70 degrees C and stability evaluated with exposures of +85 degrees C storage temperature. Cell case designs and self-diagnostic/prognostic capabilities will be addressed to improve safety and service life.
