Revision and Kokam Formalize Strategic Partnership for Continued Lithium-Ion Innovation
Ottawa, Canada (November 28, 2016) – Revision Military, a recognized innovator in power management and electronics solutions and platforms, has formalized a strategic partnership with leading South Korean lithium-ion cell manufacturing company, Kokam. Under this agreement, Revision and Kokam will build on their near-decade-long working relationship. Revision and Kokam will continue to collaborate on technologically progressive air and ground power platforms, and will incorporate cutting-edge chemistry technology into advanced energy solutions for military use.
Over the last decade, Revision has incorporated Kokam’s large form-factor lithium-ion cell technology in the design and development of high-end military power platforms. This has resulted in energy solutions that feature greater power performance, high energy density, high gravimetric and volumetric power density, longer cycle and calendar life, low impedance and heat generation, lightweight, low self-discharge rates, and extremely efficient heat dissipation. Revision has taken this excellent foundation and developed industry-accelerating power management solutions specifically engineered for use in rugged, remote, and extreme conditions. Together, Kokam and Revision have made significant progress in using lithium-ion technology to deliver operational effectiveness on the battlefield, and are solving power management issues that have plagued operators since electrical energy became a battlefield necessity.
“With two strong, innovative power management collaborators like Revision and Kokam working together, new and intelligent power solutions for operational survivability can be accomplished,” said Jonathan Blanshay, CEO, Revision. “In formalizing this strategic relationship, we can address our customers and their operational needs for an ever-more connected and electric battlefield. Kokam has a sterling reputation for providing battery solutions for a wide variety of military applications to leading international defense contractors and Ministries of Defense; this partnership reinforces Revision’s focus on the military power market, and reinforces the approach we have taken so far that has resulted in significant contracts. We’re excited to cultivate this partnership further, and to seize this opportunity to fuel continued growth, specifically for vehicular platform power innovation, as demand surges globally for reliable, lightweight, high-endurance electrical power solutions to meet battlefield needs. Together with Kokam, we will deliver warfighter power solutions with a lean logistical footprint and real operational benefit, thereby relegating back-breaking loads of batteries and inefficient vehicle systems to the past.”
Revision and Kokam will build on the past successes the two companies have had together. Kokam’s patented Z-folding manufacturing technique and advanced Lithium Polymer and thin film laminations will continue to feature in Revision’s operationally focused Nerv Centr™ energy solution programs for the foreseeable future. In formalizing this partnership, Revision and Kokam are mutually poised to expand market reach on a global scale in the constantly-evolving military power management industry.
