IAPG Chemical Working Group Safety Panel Meeting 2019 in conjunction with the Li6T Meeting

Feb 12, 2019 - Feb 14, 2019

Li6T Meeting returning in 2019: A half-day session to allow for discussions focused on Li6T is scheduled for Thursday, February 14, 2019.  6T is a NATO standard format for Lithium Ion batteries, and anticipated to be the most commonly procured large format Li-ion battery pack in the DoD, giving it tremendous economies-of-scale and commonality advantages.  If you would like to present at the Li6T Meeting, please contact Eric Shields with your presentation title. Attendance is limited to U.S. government and government contractors only, see guidance below.
