Recent Corporate Highlights:

  • Revenue has grown at a compound annual growth rate of 102% from 2021 through 2023.
  • Secured a commitment exceeding $1 million with H55 Inc., a pioneer and global leader in electric propulsion. H55 will employ KULR's unique Thermal Runaway Shield within its propulsion systems that equip fleets of industry behemoths such as Pratt & Whitney and CAE Inc. Embedding KULR's TRS into H55's Electrical Propulsion System (“EPS”) is critical for aligning with the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (“EASA”) safety protocols.
  • Secured a pivotal contract exceeding $865,000 from Nanoracks (now part of Voyager Space’s Exploration Segment). Based in Webster, Texas, Voyager’s Exploration team is a prominent provider of commercial space services, specializing in satellite deployment, space station research, and the development of space habitats. The contract underscores KULR's role in spearheading the accelerated development, testing and early production of a specialized space battery, aimed at enhancing Voyager’s CubeSat applications.
  • Received a six-figure contract from Lockheed Martin for developing phase change material heat sinks that are pivotal for the thermal regulation of essential electronics within long-range precision missiles. This achievement follows a series of successful evaluations that showcased the efficiency of KULR's solutions in cooling critical onboard systems.
  • Received an initial purchase order from one of the world’s largest privately held space exploration companies for enhanced battery safety testing solutions, using the Company’s KULR ONE Design Solutions (“K1-DS”) platform. The proprietary K1-DS platform incorporates the most comprehensive design and testing methodology for battery safety. Though specific terms of the contract remain confidential, the customer has publicly forecasted a substantial ramp-up in its planned space missions as it continues to scale its satellite deployment throughout 2024.
  • Confirmed collaboration with a leading U.S. automaker focusing on mitigating thermal runaway risks in EV battery modules through KULR's advanced SafeCASE™ technology. This project underscores KULR's commitment to safety and innovation in the rapidly growing electric vehicle market.
  • Engaged by one of the few global leaders in space travel to design, develop, and deliver battery systems tailored for the rigorous demands of space travel. These batteries will power the dramatically growing commercial space business for KULR’s partner for its immediate needs and into the future. The commercial, economic, and mission-critical requirement for on-time delivery of consistently safe, reliable, and efficient battery power solutions coupled with the complex demands of space travel led this customer to KULR. While the program is already underway, upon achieving anticipated milestones, both KULR and its partner anticipate follow-on orders supporting a significant increase in the frequency and scale of planned space missions.
  • Secured new special permits from the United States Department of Transportation related to its patented SafeX product suite, including SafeCASE™ and SafeSLEEVE™. The recently granted Special Permit 21693 and Special Permit 21704 cover transportation of damaged, defective, or recalled (“DDR”) batteries as well as end-of-life batteries to include the critical area of battery disposal and recycling, paving the way for safer and more sustainable battery recovery and reuse practices. The new special permits are expected to generate additional opportunities for KULR with both existing and new customers in various industries.
