Lockheed Martin Selects Battery Tech Partner For Unmanned Vehicle

Abstract:
Battery and associated systems provider Electro Energy Inc. recently announced a new contract award from A&D manufacturer Lockheed Martin the development of Very High Specific Energy Battery Cells for use in the High Altitude Airship (HAA) program.

Lockheed Martin's Defense and Surveillance Systems business, based in Akron, OH, contracted Electro Energy to develop an advanced, light-weight, rechargeable lithium ion battery to help power the HAA, an unmanned, lighter-than-air vehicle that will operate in a geostationary position to provide an array of communication and navigation services for both civilian and military purposes. Lockheed Martin is the prime contractor for the HAA.

"Very high specific energy rechargeable storage technology is a key to enabling stratospheric airships like HAA to stay aloft for many months at a time," said Stavros Androulakakis, Lockheed Martin's HAA program and technical manager. "Electro Energy's advanced rechargeable lithium-ion battery is an example of what is possible with recent developments in the practical application of nanotechnology."
