Testing Utilizes KULR’s Leading Bomb Calorimeter Product
SAN DIEGO / GLOBENEWSWIRE / October 25, 2022 / KULR Technology Group, Inc. (NYSE American: KULR) (the “Company” or “KULR”), a leading energy management platform accelerating the electrification of the circular economy, has commenced Phase 2 development of its passive propagation resistant (“PPR”) battery systems for the Lockheed Martin Corporation (NYSE: LMT) (“Lockheed”). Following a successful Phase 1 trial in November 2021, the testing for Phase 2 began in Summer 2022, utilizing KULR’s recently implemented bomb calorimeter and leveraging the Company’s technological advancements in PPR energy products for its Advanced Energy Systems.
A bomb calorimeter measures the total heat generated in a particular reaction. Data gathered with KULR’s bomb calorimeter can be used in combination with additional information collected from running experiments in the Company’s Fractional Thermal Runaway Calorimeter (“FTRC”), licensed from NASA, for similar cell types. The FTRC supports the determination of both the total amount of heat generated and the fraction of heat contained within the ejecta compared to that retained in the cell body. These compiled datapoints are critical for cell selection decisions and for designing battery systems that are safe against the unique cell level thermal runaway response.
In addition to serving NASA and defense contractors, the versatile FTRC also provides significant value to commercial leaning companies that wish to develop better battery pack and battery management system (“BMS”) designs.
“Lockheed Martin is a valued KULR customer, and we are encouraged to be jointly proceeding to Phase 2 in developing our PPR energy products for their Advanced Energy Systems,” said Dr. William Walker, KULR’s Director of Engineering. “We are confident our state-of-the-art technological capabilities will meet their needs and lead to a continued, longstanding partnership with one of the leading aerospace, arms, defense, information security, and technology companies in the world.”
KULR has developed a multitude of products to increase the performance of aerospace and U.S. Department of Defense (“DoD”) technologies and is continuing to research new and innovative thermal management and energy solutions.
