Li-S Energy progress commercial opportunity
In today’s statement, Li-S Energy advises it has signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with Insitu Pacific (Insitu). The latter is a wholly-owned subsidiary of global behemoth, Boeing Co (NYSE: BA).
Under the MoA, both parties will work together in developing Li-S Energy’s battery technology into Insitu’s uncrewed aircraft systems (UAS).
The batteries will undergo a number of tests to check they meet certain specifications before being put into production. This relates to adopting the same size, weight and power constraints as Insitu’s UAS, and using the same payload space and connectors.
From there, a joint flight-testing campaign will take place at Insitu’s test range in Queensland to demonstrate the improved performance.
If successful, this will place Insitu in a favourable position for contending numerous global small tactical UAS opportunities. In turn, this highlights a strong potential revenue stream for Li-S Energy.
Li-S Energy CEO Dr Lee Finniear commented:
We are very pleased to be working with one of most recognised names in the aviation industry. As the market for UAVs continues to accelerate with new applications and capabilities, battery weight and energy density has become one of the most critical factors for UAV performance.
We are looking forward to working with Insitu Pacific to demonstrate the benefits of Li-S Energy batteries in these applications.
