Agency: Navy
Topic: N142-110
Budget: 10/23/14 - 05/01/15

The Sonobuoy has been and is continuing to be used for safeguarding Navy ships and other related applications. But the need for even higher power and more capabilities from the Sonobuoy has increased the demand for more power from its primary battery to support pulses from the present 4500 watts to 6500 watts pulses. LithChem Energy (LCE) has de...

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-182
Budget: 03/28/07 - 12/28/07

Satellite mission life is limited by the life of its batteries which are significantly limited by the amount of pulsing, peak loads or spikes which occur during discharge cycles. A capacitor is coupled with the battery in order to reduce or eliminate these damaging current demands and thereby prolonging the lifetime of the battery and the satel...
