Research Institution
American Energy Technologies Co., a woman-owned small business concern of Illinois will partner with Lockheed Martin Corp"s Missions Systems and Sensors and with Analog Devices, in order to develop and demonstrate a new and improved primary battery capable of delivering up to two thirds of the energy density of gasoline as employed in an internal combustion engine, and up to 6.5 times the specific capacity reported to date for the most advanced Lithium-Ion batteries. The development effort seeks to produce one of the highest energy density battery systems in the market of conventional chemical batteries. The end product will have a calendar life of 20 years, and will represent a maintenance-free, safe, flight worthy, environmentally benign design. Application of new generation conductivity enhancement additives, along with the precise engineering of porosity in electrodes, and with other optimizations, will boost system"s projected power density to values comparable to those of Lithium-ion batteries. Cell performance during Phase I shall be established in the BR2450 coin and in the cylindrical 32650 cells of new and improved interior design. Phase 1 Option will focus on prototyping of a 24VDC battery module so as to be able to conduct full scale testing in the targeted end-use devices.
