Abstract:

This study, sponsored by the North American Technology and Industrial Base Organization NATIBO, assesses the long term health of the North American military battery production base. This horizontal assessment identifies batteries that have commercial applications, dual use batteries meeting DoD needs, and batteries that meet unique military requirements. It also identifies battery chemistries where the capability to manufacture that particular line may disappear and discusses the impact of this loss and the potential of new or next generation battery chemistries to fill the void The study identifies current problems, the outlook for the industry, areas of compatibility, and areas of potential joint Service and Canadian cooperation. From this, the study provides recommendations for managing batteries within the military and overcoming identified problems. The report outlines concrete initiatives for improving the battery industry sector, employing dual use batteries to the maximum extent, and enhancing joint activity.
