Quallion's response to this solicitation calls for expanding the nominal operation range of its space rated lithium ion cells, while maintaining their long life capabilities. To expand this temperature range, Quallion will conduct analysis on a variety of materials. At the end of the program, Quallion will choose the two most promising formulations and deliver test cells for analysis by NASA. In Phase II, Quallion will further optimize the formulations from Phase I and fabricate our large format satellite cells for cell and battery level qualification. Quallion is also proposing a "right sizing" of this production facility to allow for cost effective, low volume production with enhanced reliability, long-term supply guarantee and design flexibility that allows for future production for NASA missions.
