Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

Lightweight Structural Battery Systems for CubeSats
This project will develop a CubeSat integrated structural battery. With structural elements of graphitic and carbon fiber electrodes in an electrolytic polymer, the multifunctional capacitive energy system can serve as both a lightweight load bearing structure and an electrochemical battery system. Multifunctional material can reduce mass and increase electrical power in highly integrated small spacecraft. More »
