Stryten Energy Awarded Department of Defense Funding for Lithium-Ion Battery Prototype

The contract award will support DoD goals to strengthen the domestic supply chain for battery technologies.

Alpharetta, April 24, 2024 – Stryten Energy LLC, a U.S.-based energy storage solutions provider, has received a contract award from the Defense Innovation Unit’s (DIU) FAStBat project to develop and evaluate a prototype 6T lithium-ion battery and potentially extend the technology to other cross-service platforms. Stryten Energy has proven expertise in designing, manufacturing and deploying lithium-ion technology to the commercial, industrial and military markets, which is strategically vital to the domestic battery manufacturing base.

The DIU’s Family of Advanced Standard Batteries (FAStBat) program seeks to address the supply chain, cost, and life cycle challenges that are barriers to the widespread adoption of lithium-ion technology in the Department of Defense. The program seeks to support the domestic growth of manufacturing capacity to underpin the United States defense industrial base.

“Stryten Energy is developing domestically owned, cutting-edge technology to improve ground vehicle reliability and efficiency,” said Scott Childers, Vice President of Essential Power at Stryten Energy. “Through this contract award, we will strengthen U.S. supply chains and provide reliable energy storage technology for the warfighter.”

Stryten Energy will launch a new lithium battery assembly plant in the Metro Atlanta area later this year to support the production of lithium batteries for military and commercial applications.
