WattUp® Wireless Charging for Military

Today’s Warfighters have unprecedented levels of situational awareness, lethality, and C5ISR1 capabilities.

However, the tactical electronic equipment necessary to achieve battlespace dominance require a reliable supply of reliable batteries, and this can be a challenge. Batteries need to be monitored and managed in depots and unit storerooms to ensure that they are healthy, charged, and ready to be deployed – and they need to be rechargeable in the field too.

WattUp Wireless charging technology can help. It is ideally suited for inclusion in tactical electronic devices, as well as for larger equipment such as UAVs. As WattUp doesn’t require connectors, it enables greater hardware durability by providing protection against dust and moisture damaging internal components. It also eliminates the risk of damage to external ports and covers.

As today’s warfighters become ever more technologically enhanced, the need for an uninterrupted power supply becomes more and more crucial to achieving battlespace dominance. US Marine Corps photo.

WattUp hardware – together with secure, cloud-based, management software – allows commanders to track the health and efficiency of their batteries, how much power is being used by which device, and to gain advance notice of when systems will need recharging.

WattUp RF wireless charging technology also delivers tactical advantages to military user. Devices and batteries can be charged at a distance, without perfect alignment, and automatically once in range — no need to manually check batteries or to physically connect chargers.

Possible military applications include unmanned systems, radio and data communications, situational awareness and targeting devices, field medical support – and more.

1 C5ISR is an acronym used by the U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. intelligence agencies, and the defense community which stands for Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Combat Systems + Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance.
