Abstract:

Changes in aircraft technology and advances in electronic and electrical equipment desing have caused increased demands for electric power. Batteries in the smallest and lightest design must be capable of delivering high rate currents under all ambients for starting power, have good high rate charge acceptance and be available in the fully charged state in case of emergency. The report details all the problem areas, evaluates the various secondary electrochemical systems in terms of aircraft use, describes the redesign efforts of the Military Services, and presents a critique of specifications covering aircraft batteries.
