BallAerospaceLogoBall Aerospace & Technologies Corp. has awarded a $1.2 million order to battery manufacturer Saft for a lithium-ion battery that will work to supply electricity for a future satellite.

Ball Aerospace intends for the battery function as the spacecraft’s main power source as it requires invariable voltage levels to operate, Saft said Tuesday.

“The agreement represents a new customer relationship for Saft, and enables us to expand our program experience with our lithium-ion technology,“ said Glen Bowling, Saft“™s specialty battery group sales director.

Delivery of the batter is scheduled for 2014.

Saft aims to store high-energy space cells in eight modules to create a 32.8-volt li-on battery with 240 ampere-hours of power.

The company also intends for the batter to work in hostile environments outside the Earth.
