KULR said this battery pack format establishes them as one of few companies to have successfully achieved NASA’s stringent requirements and rigorous testing. This is set out in the JSC 20793 Revision D safety standard created by NASA-crewed space missions.
It will offer this battery format to commercial customers from Q1 2023. The battery pack prevents flame and effluents from leaving the housing and causing destruction.
The standard design of the CubeSat battery pack is 100 Wh with a maximum capacity of 7 Ah. It is constructed using high-performance Molicel 18650-M35A cells. Cell quantity and energy capacity of the battery pack format can be adjusted as required.
The company is involved in the development, manufacture and licensing of carbon fibre thermal management technologies for batteries. It has long-developed cooling systems for NASA space missions.
