Next Generation Li-Ion Technology from SAFT 2008-01-2921

At the end of 2007 SAFT developed the next generation of power Lithium Ion and delivered first prototypes. This work is funded by US Army TACOM and is continuation of US Air Force AFRL sponsored effort aimed at meeting the needs of both aircraft power as well as emerging Directed Energy applications. Ultra High Power (UHP) Li-ion cells offer unparalleled continuous and pulse power. Additionally the technology is capable of excellent charge acceptance and power delivery at low temperature. These specific characteristics could enable a floating on the bus aviation battery in the near future. The extreme pulse power capability coupled with limited heat generation make the technology a leading candidate for a Directed Energy intermediate energy storage power system.
