The KULR presentation will enlighten aviation regulators, designers and safety experts on how the TRS technology may be adapted to contain and extinguish an explosive event caused by thermal runaway in consumer products such as smartphones, laptops, vape pens, and battery packs during commercial airline travel. Since 2017 (thru July 31, 2019), the FAA reported a total of 121 air/airport incidents involving smoke, fire, extreme heat, or explosion due to lithium ion batteries.
Battery failures are a clear and present danger in many areas but especially in airline travel where spaces are confined and response and assistance resources are limited.
That’s why we’re excited to present our proven solutions, the same ones NASA and other partners are using, to aviation and aircraft experts at this conference.
I am hopeful that, together, we can make air travel safer for everyone.
