Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) cells are being developed for high-power batteries in space; especially there is a strong need to miniaturize Li-Ion batteries for CubeSat and SmallSat. For this reason, we propose a process to design and implement Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) in-house Li-Ion battery pack which provides us control over testing to design a high quality battery pack with low cost, risk reduction, and being able to adapt interface and mechanical form factor.
Goddard scientists and engineers are developing SmallSat for the Center’s and NASA’s mission needs. The Goddard in-house Smallsat Li-Ion design address capabilities for NASA’s missions in science, exploration and space operation. This technology development includes two processes: Characterize Li-Ion cells and design battery pack as following:
