AbstractThe rapid growth in portable and wireless communication products has brought valuable advancements in battery technology. No longer is a battery restricted to a metal container in cylindrical or prismatic format. Today’s batteries (both primary and secondary) can be constructed in thin sheets and sealed in foil/plastic laminate packages. Along with improvements in energy density, temperature performance, and environmentally friendly materials, these batteries offer greater packaging options at a significantly lower development cost. Under the Hardened Subminiature Telemetry and Sensor System (HSTSS) program these battery technologies have been further developed for high-g telemetry applications. Both rechargeable solid state lithium-ion polymer and primary lithium manganese dioxide batteries are being developed in conjunction with Ultralife Batteries Inc. Prototypes of both chemistries have been successfully tested in a ballistic environment while providing high constant rates of discharge, which is essential to these types of applications. Electrical performance and environmental data are reported.
