Storagenergy Technologies Inc. proposes a novel high energy all solid-state Li-S battery (ASSLSB). If successful, the proposed high energy battery systems will enable high power/energy storage for future science and exploration missions and offer benefits to other national needs.
Because of the benefits of the proposed ASSLSB in terms of its high energy, high power and excellent safety, the novel battery has the following space applications, such as missions using electric propulsion, robotic missions, lunar exploration missions to NEO and MARS, crewed habitats, astronaut equipment, robotic surface missions to Venus and Europa, polar Mars missions and Moon missions, and distributed constellations of micro-spacecraft.
The proposed high energy ASSLSB offers benefits to other national needs. This includes national defense systems such as unmanned aerial vehicles, unmanned underwater vehicles, and soldier portable power systems, all-electric and hybrid cars, grid-scale energy storage systems etc.
