Abstract
Today''s military equipment has become increasingly reliant on powerful and sophisticated electronic components that require a wide range of batteries providing: high energy and power per unit mass and volume, operation in a wide range of temperatures, long storage life, and safety. Hence, the Army has migrated to the use of lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries with significantly reduced weight as compared to previous-generation alkaline and carbon-zinc batteries. However, the demand for improvements to Li-ion batteries continues to grow. To address this need, ADA Technologies, Inc. proposes to develop improved electrode materials for Li-ion batteries for increased power. This proposed project will result in improved energy and power densities, wider operation temperature ranges, inherently safer operation, and excellent storage / cycle lives as compared to current Li-ion batteries.
