Second Generation Power System For US Military

by Staff Writers
Eatontown NJ (SPX) Jul 27, 2006
Millennium Cell has announced that Jadoo Power has selected Millennium Cell as a subcontractor under a recent program funded by the U.S. Military's Special Operations Command (SOCOM).

The two companies entered into a strategic licensing agreement in February 2006, providing a framework for the development of a chemical hydride N-Stor fuel canister for use with Jadoo's N-Gen and IFS24 products. This is the first military program on which the two companies have chosen to collaborate; efforts are under way to develop similar fuel canisters for use in commercial applications.

The new program is a follow-on effort to Jadoo's IFS24 power system which was designed to move soldier power from legacy battery solutions to advanced fuel cell technologies. The program focuses on the development of an alternative fuel solution based on Millennium Cell's sodium borohydride technology and Jadoo's N-Stor intelligent digital fuel interface.

Initially, the IFS24 was powered by a metal hydride fuel canister storage technology. The new fuel canister, to be delivered in 2007, will be significantly lighter than the metal hydride solution and will feature a disposable cartridge offering users increased flexibility and convenience at a lower price point.

Jadoo is the leading supplier of portable fuel cell power systems to such markets as law enforcement and first responders, where battery backup and support are critical. In addition, Jadoo is selling their fuel cell products in battery replacement markets such as professional broadcast video and military.

Millennium Cell's Hydrogen on Demand(r) technology provides Jadoo with a high energy density, safe and cost-effective fuel solution to complement its existing line of fuel cell power units. Jadoo's approach of using a standard N-Stor interconnect on all of its fuel storage canisters should allow the new cartridges to be compatible with all of Jadoo's existing fuel cell power products.

"We are excited to integrate our hydrogen storage technology with the innovative Jadoo Power N-Stor fuel interface. This solution will provide the military with a longer lasting, lower weight power source," said Adam Briggs, Millennium Cell President. "We look forward to pursuing additional military and commercial opportunities in order to fund the development of even higher performance fuel systems for Jadoo's products."

"Flexibility through standards is what consumers want," said Larry Bawden, President and CEO, Jadoo Power. "By leveraging the N-Stor digital intelligent interface, we are able to offer fuel options like the Millennium Cell Hydrogen on Demand without requiring customers to learn anything new. They use the product the same way as all N-Stors are used, but have a fuel option now that can deliver efficiencies 4X the levels of current battery technologies."
