Abstract
Supercapacitor technology stands as a bridge between the high power output of capacitors and the high energy characteristics of batteries, fuel cells, and energy harvesters. Supercapacitors offer the promise of better designed power systems for soldier-based applications. Use of such technology will enable the improved design of conventional electronic equipment such as radios and targeting systems, as well as enabling futuristic weaponry such as electromagnetic pulse generators and magnetically launched projectiles. This document introduces work being carried out at DRDC Atlantic. It explains how supercapacitors work and how they fit in with military applications. The work focuses on developing new materials to push supercapacitors to new performance levels, and with special consideration to Canadian needs.
