Smart Nanobattery Suitable for Harsh Defense Environments

mPhase Technologies is in discussions with a contractor of military and commercial products for a joint venture to customize its Smart Nanobattery for retail and defense applications.

This is in line with the company’s endeavors to design applications for Picatinny Arsenal to fuel guidance systems for smart munitions. Towards this end, it has also signed a three year Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with the U.S. Army Armament Research, Development, and Engineering Center (ARDEC) at Picatinny, New Jersey.

Earlier testing with Picatinny has shown that the SmartBattery is immune to shock, vibration and acceleration. It has withstood rigorous tests that subjected it to high acceleration of over 30,000G-forces, where one g matches the attraction of gravity at sea level. The tests involving both simulations from an air-gun and live testing by firing missiles from a tank proved that the basic nanostructure of the sample power cell could tolerate extreme shock if deployed in harsh defense environments.
