Abstract : During Fiscal Year 1975 the Naval Undersea Center (NUC) performed an extensive test programs with low-rate and high-rate lithium-thionyl chloride cells. This program has aided in identifying capabilities and deficiencies with the present technology. Many deficiencies were readily corrected but others are less understood and additional development is required. As a result of this program, improved, low-discharge rate, hermetically sealed cells and batteries are being used in several ocean oriented applications. Future development programs are planned to provide safe, high-discharge rate cells for propulsion and pulse-power applications.
