mPhase Technologies Aggressively Pursuing Commercial Applications for its Smart Nanobattery
(Nanowerk News) mPhase Technologies, Inc. today announced that it has entered preliminary discussions with a major prime contractor of military and commercial products for a joint project to custom tailor its Smart Nanobattery to a major application. The Company is aggressively exploring commercial as well as additional military applications of its Smart Nanobattery to complement its efforts with Picatinny Arsenal in developing applications of its Smart Nanobattery to provide power for guidance systems for smart munitions. The Company recently signed a 3 year CRADA (Cooperative Research and Development Agreement) with the U.S. Army Armament Research, Development, and Engineering Center (ARDEC) at Picatinny, New Jersey.
"We believe we are making significant strides in broadening the potential product line for its Smart Nanobattery beyond applications for smart munitions," said Ron Durando, president and CEO of mPhase Technologies. "We are looking forward to establishing a significant partner with a prime military or commercial company. We are seeking partners that have a product line for which the Smart Nanobattery will be a compelling solution to complement our significant efforts for military applications involving smart munitions. "
Prior testing with Picatinny demonstrated extreme resiliency to shock and acceleration of the SmartBattery prototypes, surviving tests that subjected them to high acceleration of over 30,000 G-forces. (One g is equal to the pull of gravity at sea level.) The tests, which involved both simulations out of an air-gun and live testing of firing projectiles out of a tank, indicated that the underlying nanostructure of the prototype power cell could withstand extreme shock if used in military applications.
