Abstract:

A sealed nickel cadmium battery with an integral power conditioning package called a Maintenance Free Aircraft Battery was evaluated for compatibility and performance in B-52H, C-135, KC-135 and UH-1F aircraft. Modifications were made to the battery system, as necessary to achieve satisfactory performance. Flight test results are presented. General compatibility and good performance of the first version of the maintenance free battery system was experimentally demonstrated. It is recommended that further work be undertaken to establish a reliable, long term system.
