Design and Development of Rechargeable Aerospace Lithium Battery Systems
This AIR is intended to provide basic guidance on the methodologies that should be utilized when contemplating the design and development of rechargeable lithium battery systems for utilization onboard aircraft. These guidelines will apply to “installed” equipment which would be part of the original or supplemental type certification or military airframe qualification.
Rationale: Rechargeable lithium battery systems have become an accepted development in the aerospace industry. However, there are limited resources for guidance on how to properly design and develop these products for safe application aboard aircraft.
