Abstract:

During the course of this program, Eagle-Picher Industries, Inc. has developed a thermal battery which has demonstrated an energy density in excess of 17 watt-hours per pound. This advancement of approximately three times the energy density of thermal batteries was accomplished with the lithium aluminum iron disulfide system. The technology necessary to manufacture a thermal battery which will produce 28 volts at 30 amperes for 30 minutes has been achieved. Author
