Abstract
The objective of this proposal is to develop a high-energy and high-power hybrid system consisting of a lithium ion (Li-ion) battery in conjunction with an ultracapacitor (UCAP) for advanced power storage systems for interceptors. Yardney Technical Products (YTP), the world leader in cutting-edge Li-ion battery technology proposes to design, develop and test new improved materials for several cell components to provide higher energy density, better low temperature (below -20 & #61616;C) performance, higher DoD in life cycling without significant loss of cycle life. The program first optimizes then characterizes the energy density of Li-ion. (>275Wh/kg). These results are then used to design the capacitor system. The proposed space-quality high energy and high power density hybrid system can accommodate long duration missions for Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) applications.
