UltraCell Applications

UltraCell LLC is under contract with a variety of U.S. Government sources to develop light-weight and portable power sources for our military.

The U.S. Military is dependent on portable power for C4ISR (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) missions. For a typical 72 hour mission, requiring 20 Watts average power, each soldier requires 27 lbs of rechargeable military batteries (or 18 pounds of non-rechargeable batteries). Some platoons have designated individual soldiers solely to carry large loads of batteries for the platoon.

Heavy, military batteries are currently being used in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the U.S. Military needs a light-weight, high power, environmentally friendly alternative to batteries.

The UltraCell XX25™ Fuel Cell is designed to provide uninterrupted power to field computer and communications equipment for extended periods at a considerable weight advantage over existing battery solutions – 65% of weight savings over a typical 72 hour mission.

The rugged design of the XX25 makes it suitable for the most demanding of environments, and its compatibility with night vision equipment permits around the clock usage in critical missions.
