  • Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre has received response from 141 companies
  • The Li-Ion cell tech is one of the most promising electrochemical energy
  • It has developed lithium ion cells of capacities from 1.5 Ah to 100 Ah

The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) today announced that the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC) received response from 141 companies for its lithium ion cell technology. In the month of June 2018, ISRO issued the Request for Qualification (RFQ), in connection with the technology transfer, containing a brief description of the qualification aspects, technology transfer process, timelines and other relevant details. The lithium-ion cell technology is one of the most promising electrochemical energy storage technologies owing to its high voltage, high energy density, long life cycle and high storage characteristics. Recent progresses in Li-ion battery technology have made it the favorite power source for electric and hybrid electric vehicles as well.
