Abstract : The purpose of the acceptance test program is to insure that all cells put into the life cycle program are of high quality by the removal of cells found to have electrolyte leakage, internal shorts, low capacity, or inability of any cell to recover its open circuit voltage above 1.200 volts after cell short tests. Twenty three 100.0 ampere-hour nickel-cadmium spacecraft cells were purchased and tested.
