Abstract
In support of the Missile Defense Agencys Interceptor Missile Program, LithChem Energy (LCE) proposes its MDA Phase II Advanced Power Storage System for Interceptors. LCEs Interceptor Missile Lithium Reserve Battery Program and the successful completion of its MDA SBIR Phase I, resulted in the development and redesign of the basic battery cell for a 50% increase in power density, improved the consistency and performance of the cathode coating, expanded the format configuration to AA and 18650 cylindrical cells, explored the use of an improved collector foil and studied improvements in cell design. The end result is a lithium reserve battery with the following benefits: & #8226; Lower cost, & #8226; Lighter and higher power density battery (>10kW/kg complete) for the Kill Vehicle (KV), & #8226; Conformal in shape, meaning it is designed to be easily reshaped and repackaged to meet the demands of the DOD (prismatic, cylindrical and other custom shapes) & #8226; Uses a solid lithium anode which passivates for long shelf life, & #8226; Operates at room temperature and does not need additional insulation to protect the KV form heat, & #8226; Available from 4 V to 70 V and is rechargeable up to about 100 cycles for training purposes or for active monitoring,
