MetadataShow full item record
Mr. Scott Giles, NPS Research Safety Engineer, NPS Laser System Safety OfficerLithium batteries have found many applications at the Naval Postgraduate School. A survey of the characteristics of this energy storage technology reveals why they are desired, but reveals safety concerns as well. The chemical agents and failure modes can be particularly hazardous. The Navy has a comprehensive Lithium Battery Safety Program that provides mitigation for many lithium battery system hazards, but it also may be encumbering in certain respects to the research environment.
