Abstract : Phases I and II, tooling and pilot production, has been completed. Work on the project has advanced into Phase III. The tool, jigs and dies necessary for the completion of Phase I were completed within the allotted time period without encountering any unusual problems. New methods of production of the wafer cell units were developed necessitating minor adjustments of equipment previously used for prior contracts. These were also accomplished within the required time period. Manufacture of the seventeen (17) lots of wafer cell units as described in the Signal Corps Technical Requirements SCL-7510 with revisions proceeded as scheduled except that one (1) lot of high temperature batteries was destroyed by malfunctioning of the heat chamber. These were subsequently replaced. Phase III, the testing of wafer cell batteries, has been partially completed for the first eleven (11) lots produced. All testing after three months storage has been completed for lot a to s. (Author)
