Missouri-Made Batteries Power U.S. Army

When it comes to powering the U.S. military, failure is not an option. Whether it is equipment used for search and rescue or life saving communications in the field, military leaders turn to Missouri-made batteries to save lives.

EaglePicher Technologies, in Joplin, Missouri, is the industry leader in the Conformal Wearable Battery (CWB) market, and has been involved from the inception of the U.S. Army program for soldier power, providing power for the dismounted warfighter in the 21st century.

EaglePicher Technologies develops and manufactures a broad range of electrochemistries available for high-tech applications in the defense, space, medical and commercial industries. Headquartered in Missouri, EaglePicher has been a leader in battery technology for nearly a century. Whether it is their cutting-edge research on lithium-ion technology or the world’s smallest human-implantable battery, the company continues to set new standards.

Missouri is home to leading developers and producers of batteries for the defense, space, automotive, and consumer industries. We are in the top three states for battery production and a leading developer of next-generation lithium batteries in the United States. And that is only one piece of Missouri’s energy solutions industry. Batteries, solar and wind energy, and energy storage all encompass this energized Missouri industry.

Missouri’s low cost of energy, combined with low cost of living and doing business, positions Missouri as a prime location for manufacturers in the energy sector, and Missouri’s location and extensive logistics infrastructure make it simple and efficient to ship energy-related products around the world.

Additionally, Missouri’s energy talent is leading the way in energy storage development at research facilities such as the Energy Research and Development Center at Missouri S&T, the Missouri Center for Advanced Power Systems, the Center for Physical and Power Electronics at the University of Missouri and the Lithium Ion Center of Excellence. All of this makes Missouri a prime location to grow your company in the energy industry.
