Space Information Laboratories (SIL) has been awarded a contract by Lockheed Martin, Huntsville to provide 33.6Vdc@20AH Li-Ion Polymer Intelli-Pack® Battery technology in support of the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Missile Defense Agency (MDA) reentry vehicle shipsets.

SIL’s Li-Ion Polymer Intelli-Pack® smart battery technology will provide significantly more energy dense (200Wh/Kg) and higher reliable battery technology for MDA reentry vehicle shipsets with greatly reduced weight by 1/3 compared to Ni-Cad and Silver Zinc battery technologies used today.

The work will be primarily performed on site at Space Information Laboratories in Santa Maria, CA near Vandenberg Air Force Base. The contract is a fixed price Lockheed Martin battery production contract #8100004683. Lockheed Martin approved SIL as a supplier after thorough review of SIL’s AS9100C Quality Management System.

“We are extremely proud to play a significant role as a team member with Lockheed Martin, Huntsville with our Li-Ion Polymer Intelli-Pack® battery technology to bring innovation and affordability to MDA
Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS),” said Edmund Burke, SIL CEO.
