Abstract:

This report describes the work accomplished in the development of a high rate, rechargeable, silver-zinc, pile type battery for the contract period of 1 May 1974 through 1 May 1975. This program is an extension of a preceding study contract, USAF F33615-73-C-2074, and consisted of utilizing component development data to establish processing, fabrication and performance capabilities for a multi-cell pile configuration. A modular system concept using basic 100 kw modules was retained to project accumulated pile test data into systems of the multi-megawatt power range. These studies demonstrated components could be processed and fabricated into submodules capable of assembly into a four megawatt, thirty second system of 3800 pounds and less than 20 cubic feet could be realized.
