The resulting impact will be batteries with extended shelf life, superior energy density, superb low-temperature performance, and high-power pulse capabilities. These key technological features will be extensively used in mission-critical aerospace and defense batteries as well as the commercial vehicle market.

"EaglePicher will utilize our existing and extensive R&D capabilities and production facilities which have established, mature quality systems and ISO certified manufacturing for cell and battery production," commented George Cintra, EaglePicher's Chief Technology Officer. "This partnership and the IARPA award allows us to incorporate Conamix's hybrid cathode and Ionic Materials solid-state electrolytes into full scale, mature product demonstrators."
