Abstract
MANY MISSILE ADVANCED BATTERY APPLICATIONS ACROSS ALL MILITARY SERVICES CALL FOR A VARIETY OF CHARACTERISTICS WHICH CAN NOT ALWAYS BE MET WITH A SINGLE ELECTRO-CHEMISTRY. TYPICAL REQUIREMENTS MAY WELL INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING: 1. RAPID ACTIVATION TIME (LESS THAN 500 MSEC). 2. BROAD OPERATING TEMPERATURE RANGE (-54 DEG C TO +71 DEG C). 3. TEN YEAR STORAGE LIFE. 4. FIVE MINUTE RUN TIME OR LONGER. 5. MAXIMUM POWER AND ENERGY DENSITY FOR 100-200 VOLT BATTERY. THE DESIGN APPROACH PRESENTED HEREIN IS TO COMBINE THE BEST FEATURES OF A THERMAL BATTERY (RAPID ACTIVATION TIME AND LOG TEMPERATURE PERFORMANCE) WITH THOSE OF AN LTC BATTERY (EXTENDED RUN TIME, GOOD VOLTAGE REGULATION, HIGH POWER AND ENERGY DENSITY), TO FORM A HYBRID BATTERY. THE SPECIFIC OBJECTIVE OF THE WORK IS TO DEMONSTRATE FEASIBILITY.
