Company: ROME Energy
ROME Energy is leading the industrialization of next generation micro
beta-voltaic energy units with low power smart devices. Focused on
defense, intelligence, aerospace, medical, environmental and smart
city applications with patented tritium based energy that is 8 times
more capable than first generation tritium cells. Having worked with
the Army Research Labs (ARL) and developed over 100 prototype energy
devices the focus now is delivering fielded applications.
ROME Energy is focused on five key application areas with tritium
based energy units. This briefing is designed to introduce the ROME
technology and initial areas of interest and the capabilities that
support those. Providing the understanding needed for early adopters
to facilitate spring board opportunities. Particularly in areas where
today’s lithium based battery solutions are incapable of meeting the
energy delivery needs through longevity and/or working environment
limitations. Tritium energy provides always on power and works across
extreme conditions while remaining inert chemically. Power profiles
can be tailored to match mission needs and longevity that can stretch
into decades. Learn about the opportunities and potential to create
next generation industry capabilities along with a national vision and
Talk Title: Understanding and Utilizing Next Generation Micro-Power Devices
The advent of digital sensors and devices across our nation for
defense, aviation, space, medical, environmental, remote and urban
uses has created an urgent need for better more robust power sources.
Chemical based batteries are the staple but have shortcomings in terms
of weight, longevity and ability to operate in extreme environments.
Using micro atomic power sources overcomes these gaps and can play a
leading role in enabling always-on power with consistent up to 20 year
duty life cycles. This can give the United States critical advantages
both in industrial applications and also tactical and strategic
deployments of technologies globally. Effective power sources can also
be game changing in a number of key areas our nation is grappling with
Similarly these can empower or partner states and provide key
advantage technology to leading industry adopters.
The talk will outline areas of interest and provide specific examples
where groundbreaking potential exists. The goal is to have an
introduction that can spark further ideas across our 5 key areas of
focus and to help prioritize work where it is most needed and can have
