The research will focus on:

    • Developing a battery casing using composite materials that are lightweight, resistant to the marine environment and have radio transparency properties to facilitate wireless communication.
    • Developing a system of electronic devices and sensors integrated into the battery casing using additive technology to ensure real-time management and control of the system from other devices.
    • Studying the thermal management of the battery casing to improve battery performance, reduce consumption, extend battery life and charging cycles, and reduce potential failures.
