Engineer Camie Platner Presents “EaglePicher’s NASA Launch Silver Zinc Batteries: The Power Behind the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, and Skylab Missions”

March 5, 2023 @ 5:00 pm 6:30 pm

Locally mined zinc in outer space? Since the beginning of the Space Age, EaglePicher silver zinc batteries have been trusted to power historical NASA launches, including Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, and Skylab. Today, with more than 50 years of silver zinc battery production heritage, and more than 200 battery designs, EaglePicher continues to produce reliable, complex systems for the missile, aerospace, and maritime industries. EaglePicher initiated development of automatic and remote-activated silver zinc batteries in the early 1950s. The early systems EaglePicher developed were simple, single-section batteries with one voltage output. By maintaining flexible engineering, which ensures custom design, development, qualification, production, and delivery, EaglePicher continues to meet the requirements of each unique application.
