Lithium-ion battery powers MOVE underwater vehicle

Lithium-ion battery powers MOVE underwater vehicle A Saft lithium-ion battery system will power MOVE, an unmanned, autonomous deep sea exploration vehicle on missions lasting up to nine months, while it crawls the seabed at depths of several thousand metres to make continuous observations of processes at the ocean floor. MOVE, which resembles the well-known Mars rovers, is one of the new generation of deep sea exploration vehicles under development at Marum, the University of Bremen's centre of marine environmental research and NIOZ, the Netherlands Institute for Sea Research. It is designed to serve as a mobile platform for various scientific instruments and experiments and has a maximum speed of 5cm/s and a range of one km. Saft has developed a special, modular integrated battery system for MOVE, based on VLE lithium-ion cells. These cells were originally developed for hybrid and electric vehicle applications to pack as much power as possible into a lightweight and space efficient package.
