Batteries NOT included!

NASA doesn’t want to rely solely on batteries for its future space missions.  So, the agency is seeking proposals for the development of new, more capable, energy storage technologies to replace the battery technology currently used.

“NASA is focusing on creating new advanced technologies that could lead to entirely new approaches for the energy needs of the agency’s future Earth and space missions,” said Michael Gazarik, associate administrator for space technology at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “Over the next 18 months, NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate will make significant new investments that address several high priority challenges for achieving safe and affordable deep-space exploration. One of these challenges, advanced energy storage, offers new technology solutions that will address exploration and science needs while adding in an important and substantive way to America’s innovation economy.”

NASA’s is looking into two categories for the future power sources: cell chemistry and system level battery technologies, such as packaging and cell integration; and energy storage technologies that can go beyond the current theoretical limits of Lithium batteries while maintaining the cycle life and safety characteristics demanded of energy storage systems used in space applications.

NASA intends to make four awards for Phase I of the research up to $250,000 each.

As has happened in the past, space exploration may led to better power for everyone.
