Quallion to Provide Li-ion System to Boeing for C-17 Backup Power Supply

Custom lithium-ion battery manufacturer Quallion LLC was recently awarded a contract from The Boeing Company to replace the legacy emergency battery power supply system for the C-17 Globemaster III.

Quallion develops and manufactures lithium-ion batteries for the military, aerospace, medical and automotive industries. Quallion’s services include designing, fabricating and manufacturing cells and battery packs and developing new battery chemistries.

Among Quallion’s technologies is SaFE-LYTE, which integrates into the battery a liquid halogen compound that is flame-retardant and immiscible in the electrolyte. This solution significantly lowers the risk of combustion, and allows Quallion to produce batteries that are far safer than conventional Li-ion options.
