Thermal material developer Kulr has signed a strategic partnership with Gamma Technologies for multi-physics system simulation software.
Kulr will integrate Gamma’s GT-SUITE multi-scale, multi-physics analysis platform into its suite of products and services. The simulation capabilities enable engineering teams to create highly optimized, next generation battery designs using Kulr’s materials.
“Analysis has always been the backbone of design improvement,” said Kulr’s Director of Engineering, Dr. William Walker. “However, moving away from single physics models and into the realm of multi-physics models allows for endless possibilities when it comes to design improvement and product performance enhancement. KULR is excited to expand our capabilities with Gamma Technologies’ industry-leading simulation platform.”

“We are excited to be working with battery safety industry leader, KULR, as we focus in on the critical needs of the eVTOL industry,” said CRO of Gamma Technologies, Chris Walsh. “Modern rotorcraft designs have an extremely thermally demanding mission profile that includes power intensive flight segments for which deep analysis early in the design process is required.”
Kulr will use GT’s electrochemical simulation tool, GT-AutoLion3D, to develop cell and pack-level aging and cycling models.
The company is beginning phase two of safety testing with Lockheed Martin for its passive propagation resistant (PPR) battery systems.
“Lockheed Martin is a valued Kulr customer, and we are encouraged to be jointly proceeding to Phase 2 in developing our PPR energy products for their Advanced Energy Systems,” said Walker, KULR’s Director of Engineering. “We are confident our state-of-the-art technological capabilities will meet their needs and lead to a continued, longstanding partnership with one of the leading aerospace, arms, defense, information security, and technology companies in the world.”
