Lockheed Extends Ion Storage Relationship

Reading time ( words)

Ion Storage Systems (ION) announced the kickoff of a year-long, paid evaluation agreement with Lockheed Martin (LM) which expands upon a four-year relationship that began during ION’s incubation at the University of Maryland. The agreement calls for a comprehensive assessment of ION’s breakthrough solid state battery technology for integration into multiple product applications across LM’s various corporate divisions and is another major step towards commercial adoption of ION’s technology.

“We are proud of our work in bringing a safer, energy dense, and versatile battery to market," said Ricky Hanna, ION CEO. “Our unique patented technology, developed and manufactured in the US will deliver significant advancements over traditional technologies. ION is grateful for LM’s vote of confidence towards our further development and commercialization.” 

“We believe that the benefits of ION’s solid state battery technology are critical to unlocking our products’ future potential,” said LM senior program manager Steven Shepard, who oversees the company’s power and propulsion research portfolio. “We are pleased with ION’s progress thus far and look forward to their successful completion of this evaluation.”

My View from CES 2021: Day 1

01/12/2021 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
What a difference a year makes. One year ago, those of us who cover and attend CES were going from one press conference to the next; this year, we are at home going from link to link. Confusing and challenging, yes, but there are some advantages: no masks, only five steps to get to a restroom, being able to have three of four events or more displaying on your screens at the same time and being able to download press kits as needed. So far, many new devices are being introduced, but of course, they are all online, so you wonder if some of them really exist or are truly operational as yet.

CES 2021 starts today and this year there is no need for an overpriced hotel room in Vegas, no long lines to get a taxi or board a bus, and no crowded exhibit halls (one good thing this year). On the other hand, you must decide ahead of time what you want to see and make a reservation or appointment if you wish to have time and access assured.
