Abstract : Under the Hardened Subminiature Telemetry and Sensor Systems (HSTSS) program, the U.S. Army has been developing gun-hardened telemetry devices and subsystems for the testing of smart-weapon systems. These devices will be able to withstand accelerations in excess of 100,000 g and radial accelerations in excess of 25,000 g. Under this program, rechargeable lithium ion polymer battery technology and primary lithium manganese dioxide technology are being developed for ballistic telemetry applications. To date, prototypes of these batteries have survived accelerations well over 100,000 g. This report provides the currents status of these developments and reviews the battery designs and testing regimes.
