Proposal Number: 0921060
Proposal Title: Demonstration of Wearable Power for Responder Tools
Topic Number: H-SB09.2-008
Phase: Phase I
Topic Title: Wearable Energy to Power and Operate Responder Tools (Wearable EPORT)
Organization: Jadoo Power Systems, Inc.
Address: 181 Blue Ravine Rd
Suite 120
Folsom, CA 95630-4704  
Abstract: Today`s existing battery technology has major limitations that first responders are forced to accept due to the absence of alternatives. These limitations include; limited run times, excessive weight, poor shelf life, performance deterioration over-extended temperature ranges, significant quantities of hazardous materials and cycling degradation. Simply stated, battery technologies have not kept up with the performance demands of critical consumers. Jadoo Power proposes to demonstrate a 50-Watt, centralized wearable power system capable of powering first responder tools for eight hours. The proposed packaged solution will significantly decrease the first responder`s logistics burden, while providing the extended runtime required for critical operations. Additionally, Jadoo Power will deliver a CAD model of the potential packaging and architecture needed to integrate the power module into a wearable textile application. Funding this project will advance the development of wearable power products that meet the needs of federal and state first responders and commercial markets. The military and commercial markets that will be addressed include: fire and police personnel, emergency medical providers, commercial workers operating in remote areas, field computers operating away from a power grid, hikers and other recreation users, field lab technicians, surveying, professional photographers, broadcasting operators, construction workers, and others.
