Oakridge Global Energy Solutions, Inc. Is Designing New Solar Powered Lithium-Ion Battery Packs for MARTAC Unmanned Maritime Vessels


Palm Bay, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/15/2016 --Oakridge Global Energy Solutions (OTCQB:OGES), a leading U.S. based manufacturer of Lithium-ion smart energy cells for military, civilian and medical applications is excited to announce it has been selected by Maritime Tactical Systems, Inc., (MARTAC), to design new, second generation, more powerful solar powered battery packs for their "MANTAS" range of Unmanned Maritime Vessels, building on the success of OGES' Gen 1 power systems it originally developed for MARTAC during early 2016.

MARTAC is a Melbourne, Florida based company that designs and produces the Man-Portable Tactical Autonomous Systems (MANTAS) which are unmanned surface and subsurface vessels that have numerous applications in port and harbor security patrol, anti-piracy, search and rescue, mine warfare, Anti-Submarine Warfare, ISR and many other military and commercial applications.

MARTAC's enormous success at RIMPAC 2016, the world's largest international maritime exercise hosted by the U.S. Pacific Fleet, encouraged the company to approach OGES Executive Chairman and CEO Steve Barber, to see if his team could design a new second generation solar powered Lithium-ion battery pack using Oakridge's revolutionary Gen 2 Smart Energy Cell Technology. "The design specifications for the Gen 2 MANTAS battery packs are exactly the sort of challenge the Oakridge team thrives on," Barber stated. "The real beauty of this project is that we can now integrate our Gen 2 Smart Energy Cell Technology into the design specifications, so we can give MARTAC a high performance, long reliability, ultra-safe combination Lithium-ion battery pack, with a compact solar panel attached on top, that will remain continuously charged."

Mr. Barber added, "In addition to operating in a continuously charged state utilizing solar power, the battery cell pack is designed with "plug 'n play" functionality, so it can easily be installed or removed from the vessel instantly. A significant new capability of MARTAC's next MANTAS design is that it will now be able to operate under water at a depth of up to 30 feet, utilizing OGES' custom designed battery packs with its Gen 2 technology. We are very pleased to be collaborating with MARTAC in order to develop a state-of-the-art solution for their power supply requirements, to enable them to become the world class leader in their space."
