Creare is developing the SafetyCool Lithium-Ion battery management architecture, a multi-tiered combination of advanced thermal management and electronic battery management system (BMS) components designed to maintain cooler battery cells and reduce the risk of thermal runaway while provided advanced battery management capabilities. Creare is developing the SafetyCool system for NAVAIR as a potential lead acid replacement for the F/A-18 as an initial technology demonstrator. Improved thermal management lowers cell operating temperatures, improving cell efficiency, thermo-electrical performance and reliability, while significantly improving safety. The SafetyCool architecture is based upon advanced vapor-transport thermal management and advanced BMS previously developed and demonstrated for multiple military and industrial partners by Creare, an established engineering R&D firm with over 50 years of experience. Creare is searching for interested Navy PMAs and battery manufacturers that can use the SafetyCool architecture to manufacture licensed battery pack designs for both initial system design and for lead-acid replacement efforts.
