Stevenson, P., Griffiths, G. and Webb, A.T. (2002) The experience and limitations of using manganese alkaline primary cells in a large operational AUV In Proceedings of the 2002 Workshop on Autonomous Underwater Vehicles. Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers., pp. 27-34. (doi:10.1109/AUV.2002.1177198).

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


The authors describe how the use of manganese alkaline batteries for the Autosub science programme has enabled the project to progress swiftly from being a technological demonstrator to providing new ways of gathering environmental data not possible by other methods. Throughout the programme, all areas of the battery system have undergone development. that is: specification, design and manufacture of the pack; inspection and testing; packaging, storage and physical handling; electrical and thermal insulation; estimates of remaining endurance; and disposal of depleted packs.
