Abstract : The purpose of the acceptance test was to provide a 'base line' reference, prior to life cycling, for new cells. It also provides a screening against cells that are obviously bad due to internal shorts or gross leakage. The reference is provided with regard to physical dimensions, electrolyte leakage, cell capacity, internal shorts, ability to withstand long periods of overcharge, and internal resistance measurements. Six ampere-hour nickel-cadmium secondary spacecraft cells with signal and recombination electrodes manufactured by General Electric Company were tested. (Author)
