Abstract
The AIRI lead chloride cathode was evaluated for an eight hour sonobuoy battery application. Tests on ten cell batteries resulted in only five to six hours of discharge for electrodes capable of meeting the rigorous activation criteria in low temperature, low salinity seawater. Cathodic efficiencies between 75% and 95% were obtained and no deterioration in electrical performance was detected as a result of a ten day humid storage period. To achieve the goal of eight hours discharge it is recommended that the AIRI cathode be fabricated using an expanded metal rather than a woven screen.
