Pentadyne Power Corp. (Chatsworth, CA), a developer of flywheel power systems, reported that it has received an order for seven flywheel power systems from Beaver Aerospace and Defense Inc. The systems are to be delivered between November 2005 and March 2006. The DX-A2-rated order is for national defense use and is the first of a series of purchase orders expected to be delivered to Pentadyne. These orders will call for more than 500 Pentadyne flywheel systems to be delivered to Beaver over the next few years.

"This demanding application highlights the advanced capabilities of our flywheel system," said Pentadyne CEO Flint Craig. "We are very pleased to be moving forward with this important program. To be selected for such a high-profile national defense application confirms the ultra-reliability of our product."
