ROSWELL, Ga., Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- GS Yuasa Lithium Power, Inc. (GYLP) announced today that its batteries provided electrical power to Orbital Sciences Corporation's (NYSE: ORB) Cygnus cargo logistics spacecraft on its maiden voyage the International Space Station.

GYLP's battery, built in Roswell Georgia, uses high energy density LSE190 lithium ion cells to provide power to Cygnus immediately after launch and during in-orbit operations.  GS Yuasa's lithium ion batteries provide a low mass and highly reliable solution to power the Cygnus advanced maneuvering space vehicle.

"The berthing of Cygnus at the ISS marks a great accomplishment for Orbital," said William Moll, GYLP president. "We are excited to be a part of their success, and we will continue to support Orbital in their future ISS Cargo Resupply Services missions."

Orbital's Cygnus Vice President Program Manager, Mr. Frank DeMauro, said, "GS Yuasa is a trusted supplier of high-quality battery systems and is an integral member of our Cygnus supplier network.  Their battery cells, which have flown aboard other Orbital spacecraft, are instrumental in ensuring the success of the current COTS demonstration mission, as well as the upcoming operational cargo resupply mission under Orbital's CRS contract with NASA."

GYLP is under contract to provide flight batteries for the next eight resupply missions that Orbital will fly to the ISS through 2016.
