Abstract

This Phase I Small Business Innovation Research Proposal details the technical and business strategies of Blue Sky Batteries to develop extremely high charge capacity polymers for use as cathodes in rechargeable lithium or lithium-ion based batteries. The weight and packaging savings associated with using these polymer cathodes will translate to reduced mission cost and decreased device profile for missle defense appications. Private sector commercial benefits of using these cathodes include increased portability and flexibility in product design as well as reduced power storage costs
