Overview
Title:  Aircraft Batteries and Components
Scope:  Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Crane Division, achieved cost avoidances throughout the Military Services by applying design improvements across several battery systems which attributed to aircraft reliability and mission readiness. The types of batteries in military inventories are extremely diverse. Each type has different requirements for life-cycle, service life, transportation , handling and environmentally sound manufacturing and disposal. Problems that arose from development and acquisition of contractor produced batteries included high procurement costs, poor designs, and extensive maintenance. The outcome, replace OEM components with government designed equipment that incorporated technological improvements. These new batteries, with greatly extended maintenance and replacement intervals reduced the need for spares procurement and were integral in lowering unit costs. As a result, standardization afforded an opportunity to improve design and performance while lowering costs.
