AFWERX is a catalyst for innovation within the US Air Force, announcing that as one of 179 teams selected from around the world, Nanoramic Labs participated in the energy competition for the Department of Defense.

The AFWERX challenge revolves around six themes-stationary and mobile energy generation, energy transmission and distribution, stationary and mobile energy storage, new combat and operational equipment, improved data availability for planning and decision-making, and energy culture, policy and education. The recommendations presented represent innovative solutions that can make war and humanitarian missions more effective to reduce dependence on fossil fuels.

The Nanoramic Lab is located in Boston, Massachusetts, and competes with diverse teams from North America, Europe, Australia and other allied countries in fixed and mobile energy storage challenges. These teams represent startups, small businesses, large enterprises, and academic institutions. And research laboratories are competing for Reimagine Energy from the Department of Defense.

AFWERX’s Mark Rowland said: “AFWERX’s reimagining of energy for the Department of Defense’s challenges is critical to our mission to expand collaboration between large companies and entrepreneurs to accelerate Air Force solutions.” Congratulations to the team in the next phase. Their contributions are priceless and have the potential to create game-changing results throughout the Air Force enterprise."

The Fixed and Mobile Energy Storage Challenge is dedicated to developing advanced combat and combat equipment, conceiving new ways to transport energy to the need, and developing better storage devices. The Department of Defense (DoD) consumes a large amount of combat and facility energy to provide a combat force. The Department of Defense is one of the world's largest single consumers of energy, and the Air Force is the largest user of fuel energy by the US government. Today, the way we generate, transmit, store, and use large amounts of energy is both the most important driving force for combat and a potentially serious vulnerability.

The solution chosen by AFWERX for stationary and mobile energy storage challenges is Nanooramic’s high-power and wide-temperature FastCap lithium-ion capacitors. Nanoramic's FastCap Lithium Ion Capacitor is an energy storage device with high energy density and wide temperature range, and can work at temperatures as low as -55⁰C. Lithium-ion capacitors combine the best features of EDLC and lithium-ion batteries. The result is that the energy density of the device is better than EDLC, but it has no self-discharge characteristics, and has higher durability (more charge and discharge cycles) than lithium-ion batteries, and there is no potential for thermal runaway.

Mitch Koffel, vice president of business development for Nanoramic Labs said: "The Nanoramic team is pleased to have the opportunity to introduce our technology and show how it can help the US Air Force solve its energy storage problems." The company demonstrates our technology together".
