Ultracapacitors for Aerospace and Defense Applications

In aerospace and defense systems, electronic components are used in a wide range of subsystems including telemetry subsystems, structural subsystems, tracking subsystems, velocity control subsystems, power distribution subsystems, and thermal control subsystems. Most of these applications subject electronic systems to shocks, vibrations, and hostile temperatures. Unlike conventional supercapacitors, Nanoramic's FastCAP low temperature and structural ultracapacitors are engineered to withstand these conditions, making them an ideal choice for use in modern defense and aerospace industries.

Structural Ultracapacitor Energy Storage

The concept of structural energy storage seeks to synergistically combine the mechanical, load-bearing qualities of chassis infrastructures with the electrical, power-delivering capabilities of contemporary energy storage solutions. Capacitor sizes and shapes are tailored for space constrained and unusual shapes where conventional cylindrical or prismatic solutions are difficult to integrate. Applications target either a reduction in system size or an augmentation in system power and energy. Strong candidates for this technology include: Satellites (CubeSats, NanoSats), Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), Robotic, Platforms, Cargo Modules, Micro-sensors, Missile Systems, Underwater Vehicles, Light Military Vehicles, Electric Vehicles, Electric Motorcycles, Scooters, Motor Housings, Integrated Renewable Storage, Race, Cars and Motorcycles, Small Consumer Electronics, Battery Chargers, Hybrid Battery Systems.

Nanoramic's Ulyss ET for EM Telemetry

March 23, 2017

Nanoramic's Ulyss ET for EM Telemetry

The Ulyss ET Systems boosts signal, reduces cost, and improves data rate. In this paper, we’ll introduce Nanoramic’s Ulyss ET (ET) as a solution for EM telemetry that boosts signal, reduces cost, and improves data throughput. EM telemetry is a method of transmitting digital information to the surface during Measurement While Drilling (MWD) and Logging While Drilling (LWD) operations. These systems transmit very low frequency EM waves to the surface through the ground that are subsequently decoded on the surface. These systems, inherently, require an energy storage solution capable of delivering high power on the time scale of a minute.

Automotive Microhybrids

Strict efficiency goals for manufacture car fleets are pushing engineers toward new technology to increase driving efficiency while keeping costs low. Such technology includes start-stop systems, electric turbo-chargers, propulsion assist systems, and energy recovery systems. Many of these features require an energy storage technology that is both high power and high cycle life, pushing traditional lead-acid and lithium-ion technology past their specifications. Ultracapacitor modules and hybrid systems provide an energy storage solution to meet these requirements. Additionally, Nanoramic's high temperature ultracapacitor technology enables new design architectures by allowing energy storage to be placed under-the-hood or supported with minimal active cooling, potentially simplifying the vehicle design and reducing overhead costs.
