KULR Technology partners with Airbus Defense and Space to provide lithium-ion battery safety solutions

KULR's HYDRA Thermal Runaway Shield surrounds and separates individual cells in multi-cell packs and contains carbon fiber core and liquid coolant

The HYDRA TRS stops or mitigates the effects of dangerous lithium-ion battery failures known as thermal runaway propagation

KULR Technology Group Inc (OTCQB:KULR) announced Tuesday it is partnering with Airbus Defense and Space to provide KULR’s passive propagation resistant (PPR) battery design solutions for ongoing research into lithium-ion battery testing and safety for flight applications. 

The electrical engineers at parent Airbus SE (OTCMKTS:EADSY) do research and develop safe battery solutions for defense, space, helicopter, and aircraft applications, KULR noted.

In a statement, KULR said its PPR design combines HYDRA Thermal Runaway Shield (TRS), LYRA internal short circuit, and NASA’s Fractional Thermal Runaway Calorimeter cell analysis technologies to provide an integrated total solution for battery testing and safety.

The HYDRA TRS is a sleeve-like shield that surrounds and separates individual cells in multi-cell packs and contains carbon fiber core and liquid coolant. The unique combination and configuration of the shield passively draws the intense heat of cell failures away from nearby cells while dousing the failed area in a cooling and fire-prevention liquid.

Though weight and volume of thermal management solutions are the most critical constraints in flight applications, KULR said its carbon fiber architecture offers superior mass and weight advantages.

“We are excited to work with Airbus to refine and enhance its battery safety research, an agreement that further demonstrates our commitment to battery safety in consumer and commercial applications,” said Michael Mo, CEO of KULR. “We believe our TRS technology can provide a lightweight and effective solution to mitigate thermal runaway propagation risk for Airbus’ high-performance batteries.”

California-based KULR said its HYDRA TRS is proven by various government testing authorities to stop or mitigate the impacts of dangerous lithium-ion battery failures known as thermal runaway propagation. 

Last year, Leidos and NASA used KULR’s HYDRA TRS technology to safely ship to and store batteries aboard the International Space Station. In addition, NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center recently awarded KULR a dual-use technology development agreement to build 3D printed battery systems for manned and robotic space applications.
