Launcher pyrotechnic functions: High power lithium cells or hybrid architecture with supercapacitors of few farads up to 10F will be needed to replace obsolete NiCd batteries for the nominal pyrotechnics lines.Developments of supercapacitors up to a few hundred farads are of prime interest for launchers as their use within a hybrid power supply could lead to a drastic gainin mass for the Electro-Mechanical Thrust Vector actuation system (EMTVAS).
