We would like to invite you to the Spring meeting for the Center for Research in Extreme Batteries (CREB) to be held May 7th at the Army Research Lab in Adelphi Md. In addition to this being our general Spring meeting, we are going to highlight changes being made in the Army through the Army's new Modernization Command and the effect it will have on energy storage through their top priorities in Soldier Lethality, Next Generation Combat Vehicle (NGCV) and Future Vertical Lift. High rate batteries are of particular importance. There will be a few slots available for organizations to discuss their work in high rate batteries, preference will be given to CREB members.
