Why Does It Matter? Incorporating these cells into KULR ONE Space & Guardian reference designs will ensure a propagation-resistant structure equipped with the necessary safety measures to meet stringent specifications for defense and space operations.

KULR Technology Group is poised to incorporate these cutting-edge cells into forthcoming standard battery models like the BB 2590 and commercialized variations of the KULR ONE Space 100 to 400 Wh variations, harnessing its NASA-certified screening practices or similar to bolster safety.

This crucial step meets a fundamental requirement for battery packs destined for crewed space flights, in compliance with the NASA JSC 20793 standard, and for next-generation military battery packs required to satisfy extensive environmental testing requirements such as MIL-STD-810H.

KULR Technology CEO Michael Mo remarked, “This is an ideal strategic partnership for our KULR ONE platform utilizing their high energy density cell.”

Amprius Technologies’ CEO Dr. Kang Sun praised the alliance, stating, “KULR’s adoption of Amprius’ industry-leading cell based on the SiCore™ product line not only allows us to enter new markets with cutting-edge technology, but it also propels ongoing development for future demands.”

Price Actions: KULR shares traded higher by 15.1% at $0.54 premarket at the last check Tuesday. AMPX shares traded higher by 5.31% at $1.98.
