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 1.150 volts after the cell short tests. Five 100 amphere-hour nickel-cadmium spacecraft cells were tested from Eage-Picher Company, Joplin, Missouri. The cells were rated at 100 ampere-hours and equipped with auxiliary electrodes.
