The US Patent and Trademark Office has issued to Soteria Battery Innovation Group (BIG) a fourth patent for critical lithium-ion battery (LIB) safety technology that eliminates the root cause of thermal runaway.  Today’s LIBs are safe, but also potentially unsafe if damaged, abused or if they contain a manufacturing defect.  These four issued US patents cover technology that changes potentially unsafe LIBs into inherently safe ones. Soteria’s FRAND licensing business model ensures the entire industry will have access to these battery materials which can provide inherent safety in cell phones, drones, electric cars and energy storage systems.  Today, the Soteria

By Randal Beattie, SAKOR Technologies Inc. Over the past decade, most transportation markets, from automotive, to military, aircraft, and even space systems have seen a tremendous surge of interest in hybrid and electric vehicle technology. To gain the promised efficiency benefits and green profile of these vehicles, it is important to conduct driveline and component testing during design and manufacturing that is specially adapted to the particular nature of hybrid and electric vehicles. Hybrid and electric drivetrains have several features that make testing them very different from the standard testing conducted on internal combustion (IC) only systems. Hybrid and electric systems use
