The picture shows the QM of the 1st generation of our #battery system for our LEOS #satellites during manufacturing in 2014. Back then each of the 6 strings took six weeks to manufacture. Since then we have improved our procedures and for the second generation of battery (BAT-110) the manufacturing is now significantly faster at one week per battery string. It is however still one of the most labour intensive subsystems. To further improve this we are currently optimizing the battery for large scale serial production. The target is that similar to all other subsystems we will be able to manufacture at least one subsystem set per day in our #factory. This makes battery manufacturing as demonstrated by Berlin Space Technologies GmbH one of the key elements of the #Henryfordmoment.
