Abstract : Shock and vibration tests were conducted on stationary type lead-acid batteries under consideration for use as emergency power in the Minuteman Launch Control System. These tests were conducted to determine whether lead-acid batteries of this design would meet the Minuteman shock and vibration requirements. In order to facilitate the tests as well as obtain information of importance, three manufacturers submitted representative battery cells on a no-charge basis. (Author)
