Reimagining Battery Architecture

  • Solid state battery featuring multi-layer porous garnet-based architecture

    • Lithium metal anode (10X more energy dense)
    • Extremely thin ceramic separator
    • Cathode-agnostic design is forward compatible with next generation cathodes
  • Intrinsically safe; mechanically robust and durable; non-flammable

  • Operates over wide voltage and temperature ranges; no cooling system needed

  • Garnet superstructure solves surface area resistance issues and eliminates solid electrolyte interface (SEI), enabling higher power performance

  • Designed and manufactured in USA

Robust Technology Platform

The Ion Storage Systems solid-state battery structure looks like two sponges on either side of a thin ceramic separator, all made from low-cost materials. This novel architecture enables uniform and continuous pathways for Li-ions to move between anode and cathode with significantly lower resistance for higher power. The anode sponge is filled with high capacity lithium metal that enables higher energy density for lighter batteries. This non-flammable robust technology platform is cathode-agnostic enabling customers to select cathode materials based on application.

Competitive Advantages

Markets

The most energy dense and safest battery that can be deployed in almost any environment. 

Breakthroughs in solid state battery technology have led to a battery that meets the mission critical needs for the defense and aerospace industries, and that has high energy density with improved safety for consumer electronics, electric vehicles and grid energy storage.

Defense and Aerospace

Lighter, Smaller, More Reliable batteries enable aircrafts to fly further and reduce soldier fatigue when carrying portable military devices, enabled by unprecedented specific and volumetric energy densities.

Superior Safety from the use of non-flammable electrolytes allows for use in confined spaces in land, air and sea domains.

Extreme Thermal Stability safely powers a soldier’s portable military devices in intense desert heat, maximizing mission life.  Batteries can be placed in optimal locations near internal combustion engines or other hot components with no degradation due to excess heat.

Consumer Electronics

High Energy Density batteries result in more energy stored in smaller and lighter packages.

No External Dimensional Change enables batteries to be installed in rigid chassis with tight tolerances. Solid-state technology does not produce gases, eliminating the need for a swell budget, thus providing consumers with longer runtimes.

Superior Safety & Thermal Stability non-flamable and requires no battery cooling system.

Electric Vehicles

High Volumetric Energy enables longer range electric vehicles with less packaging constraints.

Cost Effective Design made with low cost materials, additionally solid-state battery requires no auxiliary cooling system.

Thermal Stability essentially removes need for battery thermal control mass/volume, complexity and cost, and also enables battery pack deployment under the vehicle hood near the internal combustion engine. The wide operating temperature range also enables EV usage in previously inaccessible markets.

Grid Energy Storage

Superior Roundtrip Energy Efficiency resulting from no parasitic losses from HVAC system required by conventional solutions to maintain battery operating temperatures in hot and sun rich climates.

Cost Effective Design enables low cost energy storage. Low cost materials and balance of plant coupled with a high energy dense battery results in low $/kWh installed.

Long Battery Life enabled by ceramic electrolyte with high voltage and chemical stability, even at high temperatures.
