Abstract
American Energy Technologies Co (Glenview, IL) will partner with Georgia Institute of Technology (Atlanta, GA) in order to demonstrate tangible enhancement in performance of primary lithium carbon monofluoride (Li/CFx) battery chemistry. The objective is to develop fully functional prototypes of significantly improved version of the Li/CFx system, demonstrate through internal experimentation, and deliver for independent testing at AMRDEC a low drain battery that would operate in a wide temperature range from at least f?"45 degrees C to +90 degrees C; have a service life of 20+ years; and meet all other specification requirements of the AMRDEC. The improvements will be achieved through innovation of battery design (at the same time using standard size cell components), and through enhancement of chemistry inside the electrochemical cells. Chemistry will be improved by application of new and modified active materials, innovative electrolyte system, next generation carbon-based conductive diluents for the cathode, Titanium current collector coating, tailor-made coatings for the glass-to-metal and plastic-to-metal seals and through other breakthrough changes in the cell-manufacturing technology. Targeted partnerships with existing vendors of electronics systems to the US Armed Forces will be pursued as way of ensuring rapid commercialization of this technology.
