Abstract
Maxpower Inc. is proposing the replacement of the present UAV-Sonobouy battery chemistry with a novel high power Lithium Monofluoride[Li/(CF)n] system. In a Phase I effort, MaxPower proved that a primary lithium system composed of a mixed MnO2/CFx cathode exceeds the energy density requirements of the presently deployed system. Projections based upon lab scale tests show that a 20% reduction in volume and a 33% increase in flight time can be achieved with this new system. If implemented, the Li/(CF)n chemistry will eliminate the consumption of silver in the current Magnesium/Silver-Chloride system, offering a significant reduction raw material costs. The Phase II effort will focus on the optimization and construction of the full cell and battery system prototypes.
