Abstract for "Li-Ion Cell Testing and Development for Space Applications"
In 2006 EaglePicher Technologies (EPT) management made a commitment to manufacture large format Lithium Ion cells. A significant financial investment was made to establish a state of the art facility where Lithium Ion cells could be manufactured to the quality standards of the Aerospace industry. A key part of the plan to manufacture Lithium Ion cells at EPT was the government technology transfer which took place in 2007. This qualified technology now has significant life cycle data and is a vi-able energy storage option for satellite manufacturers. This paper will provide the status of EPT produced Li Ion cells in LEO and GEO life testing. EPT has used the government technology platform to implement new cell chemistries in order to improve performance and address material obso-lesce issues. Initial LEO and GEO test results are presented.
