Abstract : A compilation and analysis of weight and volume for automatically activated Silver-Zinc primary batteries has been made. The design of a battery system to meet the Power Supply requirements has been initiated. Paper designs for two types of unit cells to be used in the 'all battery' approach to the Power Supply were prepared. Initial screening tests on 0.2 Ampere-hour unit cells were performed. Additional cells are being fabricated to verify the validity of the preliminary design. Techniques for fabricating thin (foil) cell positive and negative electrodes were investigated. A Statement of Work defining the requirements for a solid state DC to DC converter to be used in conjunction with a Silver-Zinc battery in the Missile Power Supply has been drawn up. (Author)
