Contour Energy's CFx Primary Cells Offer Longer Life & Lower Weight for Rugged, Battery-Powered Military Applications

New Military Application Brief details benefits of innovative Lithium/Carbon Fluoride (Li/CFx) primary batteries for military/defense applications

AZUSA, Calif. – Contour Energy Systems, Inc., innovator of next-generation battery systems, highlights the application of its new Lithium/Carbon Fluoride (Li/CFx) primary batteries for government/defense applications with the publication of an informative Military Application Brief.

In addition to a useful table comparing the performance characteristics of Contour's Li/CFx technology with other primary lithium battery chemistries, the Military App Brief highlights Contour's patented "Tunable Cathode" technology that allows the cell's fundamental properties to be fine-tuned for optimal energy and power density. Additionally, the company's proprietary Fluoronetic™ fabrication technique involves novel carbon precursors, including nanomaterials, as well as new manufacturing processes to achieve long shelf life and wide temperature operation.

Made in the U.S.A., Contour's Li/CFx cells and battery packs are especially well suited for military applications. The fact that CFx cells pack twice the energy density of other chemistries allows the weight of the battery packs to be almost halved. Alternatively, a Contour battery of equivalent size and weight can nearly double battery service life during the mission. Key military applications include: ground soldier ensembles, single-channel ground and airborne radio systems (SINCGARS), night vision devices, remote battlefield surveillance and imaging systems, GPS, ruggedized notebook computers and virtually any other rugged, battery-powered application.
