Abstract
Lithium-sulphur dioxide (Li-SO2) primary cells are being introduced as power supplies into Canadian Forces applications where advantage can be taken of their high energy density characteristics and low temperature capabilities. For safety reasons the high energy capabilities of these cells must be protected against the possibility of accidental abuse. DREO has investigated and identified a number of operational problem areas associated with Li-SO2 systems. Safety design considerations are proposed for three CF applications; the PRC 515 Radio Set/Radar Transponder SST-181X applications and the AN/PRQ-501 Personal Locator Beacon.
