Abstract : The physical and electrical characteristics for a high energy density, sealed,nickel- admium battery assembly are presented. It consists of twenty seriesconnected, sealed nickel-cadmium F cells restrained in a nest between twofiberglass circuit boards and potted with rigid epoxy potting. The cell nestis housed in a lightweight, rugged, ABS TANDARD, MANPACKED BATTERY CASE. This battery has the capability of furnishing .0 Ah at 24 volts or 14.0 Ah at 12 volts, and weighs 12.5 lbs. The battery ssembly yields 13 watthours per pound and 0.7 watthours per cubic inch and meets severe electrical, environmental and mechanical tests. The environmental tests include vibration, bounce and four foot drop testing on all corners, faces and edges with a cover and with simulated equipment. This assembly is the first of the standard line ABS housed batteries required to meet these rugged environmental requirements. (Author-PL)
