About Direct Kinetic Solutions

Direct Kinetic Solutions develops persistent power sources. Our devices are about the size of a stamp and can generate power reliably, safely and predictably for years. To date we have self funded our product development efforts through federal contracts, and we are looking for partners to help us expand aggressively into commercial markets. We have different proof of concept engagements in the making, and we want to make sure we can reach scale quickly to satisfy them.

Problem statement

Portable devices run out of power. When that happens you either need to maintain the device, or replace it. In some cases this limits your market opportunities, or it could lead to hard about situations when these devices are in hostile, remote and austere environments. By adding our power sources, sensors can last for decades minimizing the need for maintenance, enabling safe operations, and reducing the amount of waste generated.

Traction information

Our current traction includes securing nearly $4 million in Federal contracts, highlighted by:

A Phase 2 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project with the Air Force, aiming to extend the lifespan of GPS tags from one year to twenty.
A Phase 1 SBIR initiative with NASA, focused on developing a modular space power source to complement existing solar panel and chemical battery solutions.
Another Phase 1 SBIR project with NSF, dedicated to enhancing the fundamental components of our device.
Additionally, we have secured a contract with the National Security Innovation Capital to build a prototype capable of powering multiple sensors.

On the commercial front, we are actively pursuing partnerships with leading oil and gas companies for pipeline monitoring in challenging environments like Alaska and subsea. We are also collaborating with a prominent battery manufacturer to create a cutting-edge hybrid product. Furthermore, discussions are underway with prime defense contractors to integrate our power source into their products.
