This report presents the results of the first half of a three-year program to conduct exploratory development to improve the safetyperformance characteristics of lithium anodeinorganic electrolyte batteries. Development has been conducted in 3 major areas capacity retention of cylindrical cells, low temperature capabiilty of cylindrical cells, and abuse tests of cylindrical and prismatic cells. Significant accomplishments include providing capacity down to the 3.0 volt level cutoff at -40 degrees and no venting or explosion of cells during abuse tests, except during incineration when it is expected.
