Alpine 4 Holdings (ALPP) Subsidiary Vayu Aerospace Incorporates Cutting-Edge Solid-State Batteries into its Autonomous G1 Drone – sUAS News – The Business of Drones
Alpine 4 Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: ALPP), a leading operator and owner of small market businesses, has announced that its vertically integrated subsidiaries Vayu Aerospace Corporation (Vayu), ElecJet and Quality Circuit Assembly (QCA) have successfully incorporated ElecJet’s Solid-State Battery into a new battery assembly capable of delivering 1.55kw of power, named the “Vayu A4M1 Power System.” The A4M1 is roughly 2.5 times more powerful than its current lithium-ion power pack and can extend the G1’s vertical flight capabilities with heavier payloads, if necessary. The battery cell is fire resistant, can be punctured and still operate, giving the G1 best in class safety and reliability. The battery is also capable of fast charging at a rate of 4C, which equates to a 15-minute charge time.
TK Eppley, President of Vayu Aerospace Corporation, had this to say, “Interest for our US-1, US-2, and G1 is building with customers around the world. The company has also received inquiries from several customers in the gas exploration and aerial surveillance sectors specifically for our A4M1 powered G1. We believe the addition of the A4M1 battery pack will redefine what is possible in autonomous flight and lead to increased sales moving forward.”
Kent B. Wilson of Alpine 4 commented: “The electrification of aviation and aerospace is on the forefront of what we are doing at Alpine 4 and across our subsidiaries. The vertical integration of Vayu, Elecjet and QCA clearly demonstrates the strength of our DSF business model when multiple subsidiaries align on a project. Our next-generation US-2 will be one of the world’s first airframes designed around a Solid-State Power System. The use of our solid-state battery technology will be a key component in the future of electric flight due to its reliability, safety and charging speeds.”
