SAN DIEGO, Oct. 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — KULR Technology Group, Inc. (NYSE American: KULR) (the “Company” or “KULR”), a leading energy management platform accelerating the electrification of the circular economy, has begun Phase 2 development of its Passive Propagation Resistant (“PPR”) battery systems for Lockheed Martin Corporation (NYSE :LMT) (“Lockheed”). Following a successful Phase 1 study in November 2021, Phase 2 testing began in Summer 2022 utilizing KULR’s recently implemented bomb calorimeter and leveraging the Company’s technological advances in PPR energy products for its Advanced Energy Systems.
A bomb calorimeter measures the total heat generated in a given reaction. The data collected with KULR’s bomb calorimeter can be used in combination with additional information collected from ongoing experiments in the company’s Fractional Thermal Runaway Calorimeter (“FTRC”), licensed from NASA, for similar cell types. The FTRC helps determine both the total amount of heat generated and the proportion of heat contained in the sputum compared to that stored in the cell body. These collated data points are critical to making cell selection decisions and designing battery systems that are resilient to the unique cell-level thermal runaway response.
The versatile FTRC not only serves NASA and defense contractors, but also offers significant value for commercial-oriented companies looking to develop better battery pack and battery management system (“BMS”) designs.
“Lockheed Martin is a valued customer of KULR and we are encouraged to jointly embark on Phase 2 development of our PPR energy products for their Advanced Energy Systems,” said Dr. William Walker, Director of Engineering at KULR. “We are confident that our state-of-the-art technological capabilities will meet their needs and result in a continued, long-term partnership with one of the world’s leading aerospace, defence, defense, information security and technology companies.”
KULR has developed a variety of products to enhance the performance of Aerospace and Department of Defense (“DoD”) technologies and continues to research new and innovative thermal management and power solutions.
