Add another log to the rumors igniting around energy storage startup EEStor. According to a patent application with World Intellectual Property Organization that was recently published online (via bariumtitanate.blogspot.com), military-industrial giant Lockheed Martin is researching developing body armor and utility garments that could include using EEStor’s energy solution (page 7 of the application).

While Lockheed’s patent application references a more general rechargeable lithium-ion polymer battery being used with the garment, the application not only specifically refers to possibly using EEStor’s technology, but calls the general energy storage technology an “electrical energy storage unit,” precisely what EEStor calls the energy storage device on which it is working. A garment with an energy storage layer could help soldiers power electronics like a radio, flashlight, or GPS for longer periods of time — soldiers often carry a significant amount of weight in extra batteries to power such devices.


Man thats awesome. A power plug sticking out of your vest ready to be recharged. I can see the future when soldiers and Marine see their shields draining or cloak failing because of loss of power.

Ya its awsome. Another device for wartime. Im so impressed.


What is the point in having this power a shield or cloak? What would be the point in sending in troops that are not seen or can be hit? Why not just make a hord of robots instead and let the soldiers control each robot by remote control from the comfort of the barracks or rec room?!!

I can see the benefit of this tech for astronauts and recreational uses like mountian climbing or camping. And in the meantime, it would be useful for the combat soldier to ease the weight of carrying around battery packs.

Maybe it can also be used to power a heat jacket or cooling jacket too.



Cheers!!!!
