By August 29, 2019 No Comments

The Navy’s RFI is “seeking organization[s] that are potentially interested in screening lithium-ion cells for high reliability, critical applications” as well as storing those cells for future use in, “large lithium-ion battery systems for Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) applications.”

The RFI specifies that responding organizations should be able to “generate small batches of reliable and repeatable trigger cells (e.g., cells imbedded with the NREL/NASA internal short circuit device, available through a partnership with KULR Technologies, exclusive licensee for the device).” The RFI says, “These “trigger cells” are needed for verification and validation of the safety of battery designs…”

“KULR is pleased to have the ISC technology be the safety and validation testing solution for the NAVY battery reserve program,” said Michael Mo, CEO of KULR Technology. “It validates our long and successful history of working with government and industry experts to design and deploy the most comprehensive battery testing and safety platforms possible.”
