Partnership with leading global aerospace company underscores KULR’s commitment to battery safety worldwide
SAN DIEGO, Oct. 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — KULR Technology Group, Inc. (OTCQB: KULR), (the “Company” or “KULR”) today announces 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 Airbus (OTC: EADSY) (Euronext: AIR) do research and develop safe battery solutions for defense, space, helicopter, and aircraft applications.
KULR’s 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. 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

Airbus released three concepts for zero-emission aircraft that the aerospace company said could enter service by 2035. All of the concepts call for hydrogen as a primary power source.
By publishing the new concepts, Airbus said it seeks to lead on decarbonizing the aviation industry. The company chose hydrogen because it’s “an option which Airbus believes holds exceptional promise as a clean aviation fuel and is likely to be a solution for aerospace and many other industries to meet their climate-neutral targets.”
Each of the concepts, called ZEROe, has a different design. They are:
A turbofan design for 120 to 200 passengers that has a range of 2,000-plus nautical miles, is capable of operating transcontinentally, and is powered by a modified gas-turbine engine running on hydrogen, rather than jet fuel, through combustion. “The liquid hydrogen
