Battery Will Provide Backup Power for Space Shuttles

International Battery is building a battery prototype for NASA that will provide backup power in support of the space shuttle program. NASA is interested in the company’s largeformat, high-energy-density prismatic cells that provide advanced energy storage, as well as their Battery Management System (BMS). The BMS is specifically designed for large-format cells and provides increased safety through individual cell monitoring and continuous cell balancing. The entire system is being deployed as an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to maintain backup power for critical ground operations.


The added feature of the company’s environmentally friendly, water-based manufacturing process for lithium batteries is of additional significance to NASA. This method does not require solvents and eliminates the need for a costly disposal process. The battery prototype will be tested at Kennedy Space Center and targeted for implementation at other space centers after successful integration and testing efforts have been achieved.
