Abstract
Yardney is proposing to take the technology we have previously developed in Phase 1 and move toward thinner cell designs to meet the extreme temperature and power requirements of the next generation of high power Naval Aircraft. Just as the optimum Hybrid Electric Vehicle batteries were a step towards more power and thus thinner design, the optimum battery for high power, high energy Naval aviation applications is a step further while still using existing chemistries and assembly methods. Above and beyond the thermal advantages, the ability to rapidly dissipate heat will allow the battery to tolerate internal faults that cause other physical designs to reach temperatures that lead to catastrophic thermal runaway. The cells will be packaged into low voltage (
