Paper Abstract

Ni-H batteries have been developed for small satellites; these yield 2-20 A-hr capacities at competitive cost while retaining the long life/high reliability characteristics required for satellite applications. The RNHC-6-1 cell design presently discussed will be used by the USAF's experimental APEX small satellite and the Sea Star small satellite, where it will yield a 6 A-hr, 2.5 V capacity.
