A Pressure Tolerant Lithium Sulfur Battery Pack for MAS

Innovate UK and the UK Ministry of Defence, through The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), are investing in collaborative Research and Development projects to stimulate the development of technology for Marine Autonomous Systems (MAS).

A consortium of UK companies and academic partners, led by Steatite will produce a battery pack that will be pressure tolerant up to depths of 6000 metres. The collaboration includes Lithium Sulfur (Li-S) cell manufacturer OXIS Energy Ltd, underwater vehicle designers and manufacturers MSubs Ltd and scientific expertise from the National Oceanography Centre (NOC).
