Abstract:

This report supplements Test Report T63-6-1, dated 22 January 1963. Certain silver zinc AgO-Zn and nickel cadmium Ni-Cd cells are experimentally examined for suitability to the battery requirements of Rangefinder XM23 LASER. Figures are given for expected number of rangings, battery capacity, energy, and specific energy densities as a function of temperature and discharge rate. Battery behavior at temperatures from -40 F to 125 F is examined, and a discussion of charging is included. Author
