KULR Technology Group, Inc., a developer of next-generation thermal management technologies for electronics and batteries, announced the launch of its Safety-Driven Lithium-Ion Battery Design Solution Package.

KULR's new Battery Design Solution Package incorporates its HYDRA TRS and LYRA ISC Trigger Cell technologies into a design and testing methodology on which KULR has been working with NASA Johnson Space Center.  It is focused on improving battery safety—from electric vehicles to consumer products to transportation logistics — by managing thermal runaway of lithium-ion batteries during application, storage and shipping.

The Company has refined its design solution and services expertise through its extensive work with industry leading customers in the automotive, medical equipment and aerospace industries.

Key features and advantages of KULR-Designed Lithium-Ion Batteries:

  • Statistical analysis of cell-level fractional thermal runaway calorimetry (FTRC) results
  • Baseline battery testing utilizing an internal short circuit (ISC) cell
  • General testing procedure for new battery pack designs
  • Recommendations regarding cell venting and flame arrestors
  • Recommendations regarding thermal propagation
  • Mitigating the potential of thermal runaway from propagating from module to module
  • Safer shipment of cells, battery packs and modules

The Company's proprietary carbon fiber thermal management technologies that make electronics and battery systems cooler, lighter and safer can be seen in numerous aerospace projects, including the International Space Station, the Mars Rover and several other classified technologies.

"Our broad spectrum of industry experience will give our customers the most comprehensive lithium-ion safety and thermal management design solutions available today," said Michael Mo, Chief Executive Officer of KULR Technology Group.

"This total solutions package provides another path to transition our proprietary technologies into mass market commercialization across a diverse array of markets including electric vehicles, consumer electronics, and transportation logistics. We look forward to continued execution in bringing our technologies to market and creating long-term value for our shareholders," Mo concluded.
