69. A Bullet Resistant 32.0 kWhr .Battery Saline Electrolyte with Ceramic Electrodes
Military Service batteries need to be relatively bullet proof, as they may stand exposed without any form of shielding.Our solution was complex bur rugged and reliable for 25,000 cycles at 85% capacity. We utilized the capabilities of early bulletproof armour plates as the supporting plates for the cathodes and anodes. Thereby limiting the amount of damage to be done to a battery that wes struck by three bullets.
Ist Bullet a high load 32 Calibre projectile penetrates 6 of the 36 (20%) shatter reisitant SIALON (early bullet proof armour) Ceramic electrode supporting plates, battery is still 80% operational. 2nd Bullet a 30.06 projectile penetrates the same 6 plates at a lower level, the electrolyte is retained by a foam gel sealant in the double wall case, which closes the opening and the battery is still 80% operational. 3rd Bullet a 50 caliber round penetrates 9 Sialon Plates which are shatter resistant,the opening in the double wall foam gel sealent filled case seals itself, and contains the remaing electrolyte. Automatic push pull pumps in the lower case resevoir section, add additional electrolyte and the battery is still 70% + operational. Overall Name Plate capacity is 32.0 kWh, OA Wt. is 28.8 Kg. Battery Ht. 28 cm battery width is 22 cm battery length is 24 cm. 75% dis-charge capacity in 20minutes 25% emergency reserve capacity is accessible if required 75% re-charge capability in 20 minutes. 25% emergency reserve capacity is accessible if required 240 Volts AC (through the inverter) @ 400 Hz and 420 Amps max, current capability 25,000 cycle capability with an 85% capacity factor still remaining The electrolyte is an Enhanced Saline electrolyte, which is non toxic and will not burn, and is available everywhere their is water, the salt can be added as required. Troops, sailors, soldiers and airmen and or women and children will not be harmed by an enhanced saline electrolyte leak. The battery is light enough in groups of 8 to power small aircraft, if required . SIALON tiles have a cross-linked crystaline reinforcing matrix grown internally at 1320*C and are very shatter resistant Double Walled Case filled with Reflow & Self-Sealing Poly Encapsulated.Gel Plastic Electrolyte Sealant All the materials used in this battery are avilable within the Contnental USA, none are rare earths and all cost less that $5.00 per pound vs. nano materials at $500 per gram, or $24,000 per pound. The battery price in large quantities of 2500 is estimated to cost $225.00 per kWh. We have invested 23 years in the development of this outstanding semi-conductive ceramic electrode battery featuring 420 amperes peak capacity delivery and 240 Volts AC (through the inverter) @ 400 Hz.and having a minimum cycle lifetime of 25,000 cycles at 85% capacity.
Why it should be recognized:
This is a very specialized battery designed specifically for the Military, and is twice the cost of very different and simpler,less complesx Saline Electrolyte batteries which are very suitable for domestic usage. The other simpler line of Saline Based batterys that will be in production later this year are listed below: 1st 8.75 kWh automotive battery for use in Hybrids and all electric motor driven Vehicles. 10. cm tall, 24 cm wide, 24 cm long. 13.5 Kg., an 18 battery array will weigh 530 pouunds and provide up to 157 kwh capacity total for an all electric vehicle .They are non -toxic and the electrolyte is a fire supessant and not dangerous to humans and or animals if it is leaked, broken or spilled. Their is no flamability danger nor an explosive factor, no thermal runaway,and it is good for 25,000 cycles, at 85% capacity. Voltage is 120 Volts AC after the invertor and the maximum current capacity is 200 Amperes.and the eatmated sale price i quantities of 500 is $170. per kWhr. 2nd is a 10kWhr Home Power Backup Storage battery designed to power homes in groups of 30 batteries for a 300kWhr overall capacity. Had these been available last year before Hurrican Sandy devastated the Eastern US Coastal regions, may homes may have stayed operational for 30 days, with lihgts, Heat ,Refrigeration, Hot Water and Cooking facilities as well as Radio, Telephone ,internat and TV capability 24 /7 with moderate usage. 22. cm tall, 22 cm wide, 22 cm long. 18.5 Kg., $155/kWh

On Mar 11, 2013 mark.roest said: The batteries are fully designed and checked thoroughly in every range, hundreds of times. We have begun to build a prototype; we are now testing early electrodes in order to improve them to above 80% efficiency. With greater finance and better equipment, we could do it faster, and in multiples.
On Mar 11, 2013 john.muehlman_ph.d said: High cycles. No overheating/fire hazard. Low price. Can stand impact of three rounds. Very good.
On Feb 22, 2013 robert.means said: Superior battery technologies will play a big role in electric vehicles of all sizes and as we move to distributed generation and smart grids.
On Feb 20, 2013 Babar Yousuf said: The solution as described seems to be an competitive fit for the purpose it is designed for.
The specifications provided in this submission prove it's competitive edge.
However no URL is provided to study the company, previous clients, result test data etc.
Based on this submission the potential to use the battery as a low cost and long energy providing option for emergency and disaster control is also noted.
