Ultracapacitors, or Supercapacitors, are an energy storage technology that offers high power density, near-instantaneous charge and discharge, high reliability, extreme temperature tolerance, and a lifetime of more than 1,000,000 charge/discharge cycles.
Ultracapacitors have been under development for decades, but the greatest developmental strides have only been made in the last 15 years, driven by advances in nanomaterials, with the curved graphene material being a prime example of a breakthrough technology.
Furthermore, Ultracapacitors offer significant economic benefits in terms of energy and fuel savings in a variety of markets, including automotive, power grid and renewable energy, as well as the defence and aerospace markets.
MSA is the exclusive distributor worldwide for all aerospace and defence applications. The Supercapacitors are not yet approved for classical aerospace, but have already been successfully used for space applications. We will inform you as soon as they are approved.
