Konarka to Develop New Renewable Power Source for Army
August 4, 2003
The U.S. Army has funded Konarka Technologies, Inc. (Lowell, MA) to develop the company's photovoltaic technology in a variety of form factors for military applications. Konarka leverages nanotechnology and conducting polymers to provide a source of lightweight, flexible, scalable and renewable power. Konarka's technology converts sunlight as well as indoor, artificial light into direct current electrical power.
The technology, says the Army, will "mitigate a significant logistics burden and therefore greatly enhance the military's capabilities in the field."
