SANTA MARIA, CA – (BUSINESS WIRE)—Space Information Laboratories (SIL) (http://www.spaceinformationlabs.com/ ), is a leading provider of high-end Li-Ion Polymer Batteries, GPS metric tracking and autonomous flight termination systems, avionics, and system engineering solutions to DOD programs of national significance. SIL successfully Range Safety Space Qualified Li-Ion Polymer Intelli-Pack® battery technology in 2013 and flew successfully on MDA missions in 2013 to 2015. The Naval Air Warfare Center, Aircraft Division selected SIL for a SBIR/STTR Phase I award to develop a robust Li-Ion Battery Management System for Navy Aircraft, Helicopters and Directed Energy Weapons.

“SIL’s advanced Li-Ion Battery Management Systems (BMS) will lead the way to provide the most robust and safe Li-Ion smart batteries for mission and safety critical Aerospace applications. Our advanced state-of-the-art BMS protects, balances and monitors each individual Li-Ion cell and ensure the high battery safety during charge and discharge field operations prior to a DOD mission. Also, all battery health and status parameters are provided to the operator in real-time on the ground to ensure safety, and downlinked via telemetry from the Navy Aerospace platform during flight to evaluate battery performance in the operational environment.”

The design, manufacturing and Space qualification is performed on site at Space Information Laboratories, Santa Maria, CA. The Navy SBIR Phase I contract will allow us to develop robust Li-Ion battery management system for mission and safety critical Navy aircraft, helicopter and directed energy weapons. “SIL is extremely proud to develop for the Navy the most robust and intelligent Li-Ion Battery Management System to provide extremely safe and reliable Li-Ion batteries for Navy Aerospace platforms” said Edmund Burke, SIL CEO.
