Abstract
The report reviews candidate secondary battery systems that can be used for the propulsion of the Canadian Forces SDL-1 submersible. These battery systems are compared in terms of their physical and chemical characteristics and cost. Of the power sources considered, the improved flat plate lead acid battery is the most suitable choice to meet the present 300 Ah application. The silver/zinc system with its high energy density is the only one capable of meeting the forecast 800 Ah requirement.
