The objective of the Electrochemical Energy Storage program is to develop enabling materials systems for future electrochemical energy storage devices. The program focuses on developing nanostructured electrodes and improved solid state electrolytes for high power energy density devices and to explore new 3D nanostructured architectures to enable optimal performance. The goal is to supply performance improvement i.e. increased power and energy density, longer shelf and use life, and higher chargedischarge rates as well as provide new capabilities such as flexibility or the ability to incorporate energy storage directly into electronic devices, structures, or fabrics. Application focus for improved electrochemical energy storage materials is small autonomously powered remotely piloted aircraft RPAs, airfield support, deployed airbase power, and portable soldier power. Near term goal is to increase energy density to allow 4-5X mission duration. Long term goal is to provide an autonomous power system by coupling improved energy storage with energy harvesting to permit 247 operation.
