Military Applications:

  • Backup power for electronics in military vehicles
  • Backup power for fire control systems in tanks and armored vehicles
  • Backup power for airbag deployment
  • Backup power/memory hold-up emergency handheld radio
  • GPS guided missiles and projectiles
  • High power discharge for naval warfare
  • Cold engine start
  • Vehicle stabilizer: active suspension
  • Peak power: communication transmission
  • UAV: Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
  • Radar: Pulse Power
  • Buss voltage hold-up during peak currents
  • Bridge power: switching from ground to on-board aircraft for data retention


Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) / Smart Grid Applications:

  • Battery-free “Last Gasp” power
  • Supplement to batteries for low temperature boost
  • Battery runtime extension
  • High current pulse requirements
  • Peak power for data transmission


Uninterupabale Power Support:

Battery-powered devices such as Notebook computers and other applications often have to be
shut down when the battery is changed, or when the power is to be interrupted temporarily. The
result ranges from inconvenience to a risk of damaging data loss. Ultracapacitors or Supercapacitors can
provide a designer with a means to avoid shutdowns, possible data loss and wasted time.

The following application brief from Cap-XX outlines how thier Supercapacitors can be a soulution
