Abstract
The fusion-cast flexible lead chloride cathode material produced by the AIRI process has been subjected to a preliminary examination to test its suitability in sonobuoy battery applications. The material is capable of providing electrical performance in excess of the specifications given for a nominal three hour sonobuoy battery. The pulse discharge performance has been briefly examined and the material appears to be capable of pulsed current discharge without excessive voltage loss. Further evaluation remains to be done both on the passive and active sonobuoy battery applications for this electrode.
