"The reliability and excellent performance of GS Yuasa's space Li-ion cells allow our customers to perform longer and more complex missions, especially with the increase in power demand for electric propulsion systems on new satellites. In GS Yuasa's 100th anniversary year we have been able to achieve this exceptional milestone through the dedication of our employees, the cooperation of our partners and the efforts of our customers," said Bill Moll, President of GS Yuasa Lithium Power. "Based on exceptional value, heritage and performance, GS Yuasa is the first company to achieve this milestone." 

All GS Yuasa Li-ion cells for space share the same basic chemistry, design, materials, construction and manufacturing processes. With no cell failures on orbit, volumes of life and performance data and a solid connection between the cells offered today and the entirety of its industry leading Li-ion spaceflight heritage, GS Yuasa's value proposition is stronger than ever.

Unlike commercial cells all GS Yuasa Li-ion space cell and chemistry performance attributes are optimized exclusively for the unique environments and duty cycles imposed by spaceflight. The ability to configure a battery system with cells of this pedigree allows GS Yuasa to deliver solutions in support of critical missions without having to oversize the battery to meet design life requirements exceeding 18 years. The resulting high specific-power batteries help customers to meet power system mass targets and reduce launch costs while minimizing program insurance costs.
