Title: Thermal batteries. (Latest citations from the NTIS bibliographic database). NewSearch

Abstract

The bibliography contains citations concerning a class of reserve-type molten salt electrolyte primary cell systems (thermal batteries) that are inert until brought into use by the ignition of a charge of pyrotechnics or raised to their operating temperature by a conventional heating means. The battery remains active for hours or only a few seconds, depending on size, thermal insulation, electrochemical system, ambient temperature, and rate at which power is withdrawn. Various electrochemical systems are discussed and include, calcium, magnesium, and lithium compounds. Design, development, fabrication, and accelerated age testing of thermal batteries are presented. Applications in weapons systems as the primary power source for navigation and ignitor systems are discussed. (Contains 250 citations and includes a subject term index and title list.)
