Abstract:

Lithium Sulfur Dioxide batteries are used to power an emergency radio transmitter carried aboard naval submarines. These batteries can release undesirable gasses if venting occurs. A limited investigation was undertaken to determine the types and quantities of gasses released from these batteries to establish under what conditions the transmitter can be safely stored aboard submarines.
