Abstract : This document is the final report of Contract NOw 64-0653-f undertaken for the Energy Conversion and Propulsion Branch of the Bureau of Naval Weapons, Department of the Navy. The purpose of this effort was to develop an analysis of all potentially useful high energy battery systems for applications in naval aircraft, missiles, torpedoes, and satellites. Within the context of this program, the term 'high energy' has been specified as an energy-weight density of at least 50 whr/lb for secondary batteries and 100 whr/lb for primary batteries. The following three levels of research and development are defined: (1) battery systems which, upon completion of present research, development, and evaluation, can be immediately engineered for specific application in aircraft, missiles, torpedoes, or satellites; (2) those systems having better performance, but requiring extended research, development, and evaluation prior to engineering prototype; (3) those systems having potentially superior performance, but requiring fundamental research prior to any battery development projects. The basic sources of information used were: (1) the open literature, (2) government reports, principally Department of Defense and NASA, and (3) the patent literature. The information surveyed covered the time period from 1945 to the present. (Author)
