For generations, battery technology for military and aerospace applications remained virtually unchanged. Then Tadiran changed everything by developing a PROVEN, reliable and cost effective COTS battery technology for high rate/high voltage military and aerospace applications.
Powerful little batteries pack a punch, delivering up to 2Wh of energy, an open circuit voltage of 4.0 volts, with the ability to handle high current pulses of up to 15A, with 5A maximum continuous load at above 3.0V for a AA-size cell. lithium metal oxide batteries offer an ideal alternative to reserve/thermal batteries, and are capable of powering a wide array of military and aerospace applications, including:
• Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)
• Rocket and missile guidance
• Smart ammunition
• Torpedoes and mines
• Ground sensors
• Artillery fuses
• Active decoy systems
• Trajectory correction add-on kits
• Bomb proximity fuses
• Dispersed munitions sensor
Military grade batteries are designed to withstand extreme temperatures (-40°C to 85°C), and comply with MIL-STD 810G specs for vibration, shock, temperature, salt fog, altitude, acceleration (50,000 gn), and spinning (30,000 rpm). These ruggedized cells also meet the current UN 60086 standard for crush, impact, nail penetration, heat, over-charge, and short circuit.
batteries offer significant performance advantages over reserve/thermal batteries, a legacy technology that has had remained virtually unchanged for decades, and which requires the use of squibs and layers of thermal insulation. batteries also offer a relatively inexpensive commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solution, whereas reserve/thermal batteries need to be custom designed for each application.
