Primary & rechargeable silver-zinc systems for torpedoes
Saft offers a range of both primary and rechargeable Silver-zinc battery systems fitting the needs of combat and exercise torpedoes. Primary systems fit the requirement of PB47, DM2A1, DM2A3, MAIT6 and MK6. Saft's rechargeable silver-zinc battery technology has been developed in partnership with torpedo manufacturers such as STN Atlas (propulsion of SST4, SUT, Mk44, A184) and BAE systems (propulsion of the Tigerfish combat torpedoes). This type of battery is currently being used by over 15 navies worldwide. For reasons of safety and performance (shelf life over 8 years), the batteries are only activated by electrolyte injection at the last minute.
