Medis Technologies Ltd. (New York) announced that it has received a $75,000 purchase order to define a specification and carry out the preliminary design of a direct liquid ethanol/methanol fuel cell for a new energy pack for infantry soldiers.

“We are pleased to receive this initial purchase order for this important military program,” said Robert Lifton, chairman and CEO of Medis Technologies. “The modern soldier carries with him into the field increasing amounts of sophisticated energy-driven equipment and we believe that fuel cells have the potential to offer a unique cost-effective solution, which provides the necessary power output while meeting the very restrictive program requirements of weight and space.”
