Abstract : The report covers the cycle life test of the evaluation program of secondary spacecraft cells. The purpose of the acceptance tests is to insure that all cells put into the life cycle program meet the specifications outlined in the respective purchase contracts. A sample number of cells of each type (usually five) are subjected to the general performance tests to determine the limit of their actual capabilities. The types of cells tested were nickel-cadmium, silver-cadmium, and silver-zinc cells. (Author)
