Single-use military/aerospace systems are becoming more sophisticated and miniaturized. Meanwhile, the battery technologies used to power these devices have remained essentially unchanged for decades, creating bottlenecks to innovation and demanding more intelligent battery-powered solutions.

Single-use military applications range from ordinance guidance systems to torpedoes, smart ammunition, mines, sonobuoys, unattended ground sensors, UAVs, artillery fuses, active decoy systems, trajectory correction add-on kits, proximity fuses for bombs, and dispersed munitions sensors. Each application is unique, so when specifying a primary battery for a single-use military application, you need to evaluate all available technologies to ensure optimized results.
