Munitions electrochemical energy sources are a critical component for the SMART electronics providing control and energy to the system electrical components. Projectiles have been becoming increasingly complicated with a greater energy and demand with a smaller energy source payload capacity. Key understanding of the variations in load, constantly changing over time, and whether it is a power or energy requirement is curtail to the energy source with limited space and weight. Our solution is a flexible and conformable self steering controllable power supply consisting of hybrid battery and capacitor electrodes in a parallel configuration topology.
