Abstract:

This document establishes standards for the development, testing, storage, handling, and usage of lithium-ion batteries for military spacecraft. Compliance with this standard is intended to assure proper performance of batteries and to provide protection against pre-flight degradation and premature degradation during operational use on space, launch, and upper-stage vehicles.1.2 Application This report is intended for compliance in applicable military spacecraft acquisition and development to incorporate common requirements and practices necessary to assure successful lithium-ion battery operation during space missions. It is expected that battery piece parts, such as cell, cell-module, charge control electronics, bypass switch, heaters, temperature sensors, etc., are procured to lower- level qualification documents that define design, process, and quality controls, and qualification and acceptance test requirements. 1.3 Conflicts with Other Standards In the event of conflict between this document and the AIAA Electrical Power Systems for Unmanned Spacecraft Standard or the Space Battery Standard, this document shall take precedence with regards to any battery-specific definition or requirement.
