Abstract
The maintenance of hardware by the use of battery back-up systems or monitoring sensors is vital for critical systems. The failure of a battery due to aging or environment is the equivalent of having no back-up. Current primary batteries used for such tasks have an anticipated life far less than the equipment they are installed in. Periodic replacement of batteries in these critical systems is expensive. Johnson Research and Development is working to develop a primary battery capable of surviving 20 years or longer for health monitoring and back-up in these systems. By utilizing an all-solid-state design, the proposed battery will be able to withstand temperature extremes of 55oC to +125oC while continuing in an operational mode. The all solid-state primary battery is not susceptible to decomposition, freezing or boiling the way many traditional batteries are. This battery is intended to be a direct replacement for a nominal 3.0 volt battery
