TECHNICAL ABSTRACT (Limit 2000 characters, approximately 200 words)
Quallion's intends to develop an all-solid 600 Wh/kg, flexible form-factor lithium rechargeable energy device for advanced space power applications. Quallion's approach is to achieve greater than 600 Wh/kg combines three key proprietary developments: (1) a recently developed electrolyte, (2) a lithium surface treatment technology and (3) a high energy density cathode.

The all-solid high-energy density battery can meet NASA mission requirements. The system has a non-flammable electrolyte, making it safer than current state-of-the-art, but with greater energy and tolerance to abuse, making it ideal for manned missions. NASA would be able to deploy this battery without any risk of fire or catastrophe.

POTENTIAL NASA COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)
As Quallion has many existing aerospace and military projects, the initial market for the developed system will be aerospace military focused. However, high-energy density, safe cells have the potential to be used in virtually any market ranging from vehicles to consumer electronics.
Expected NASA Applications: Manned Space Shuttles, Rovers, Crew Capsules, etc.

POTENTIAL NON-NASA COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)
Non-NASA Potential Applications: Military Vehicle Battery, Military Aviation Battery, Medical Implantable Battery, Car (PHEV) Battery.

TECHNOLOGY TAXONOMY MAPPING (NASA's technology taxonomy has been developed by the SBIR-STTR program to disseminate awareness of proposed and awarded R/R&D in the agency. It is a listing of over 100 technologies, sorted into broad categories, of interest to NASA.)
