Battery technology has matured significantly during the past two decades as not only the world but also energy has become increasingly mobile. LIBs have grown to become the dominant battery technology across a wide range of applications. It is a disruptive technology that will significantly alter a variety of industry sectors, including consumer electronics, energy, oil & gas, transportation, and maritime. LIBs have the potential to be one of the best sources of power for Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs), torpedoes, and submarines, because their compact designs bring higher efficiency and strengthen reliability for underwater applications.
Batteries have been used on underwater applications for more than a century, for instance, lead-acid batteries have been used in conventionally powered submarines since the end of the 19th century. They are still a common power source onboard submarines. While these batteries have been the standard used in submarines, their dominance is increasingly challenged by a new generation of LIBs that offer better power and energy density. LIBs have the potential to be one of the best sources of power for Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs), torpedoes, and submarines because their compact designs bring higher efficiency and strengthen reliability for underwater applications.
While LIBs are becoming more common in UUVs, there are a few combat torpedoes powered lithium-based batteries. LIBs are now generally preferred for exercise torpedoes.
