Abstract:

Problems encountered with purchased battery packages and increasing requirements for larger capacity cells in sounding rocket payloads led to the development of the battery packages in this report. Gell cells, lead acid batteries, silver cells and lithium batteries were considered along with nickel-cadmium nicad cells however, nicads proved to be the most versatile. Several packaging concepts considering ease of assembly and servicing minimization of weight and volume and payload environmental requirements were evaluated.
