WiGL’s World Fair 2.0

As a thank you to our loyal investors, WiGL would like to take this opportunity to peel back the curtain on what we’ve been producing. As you know, WiGL does not want to be just another investment you make, we want you to share on the journey of delivering tWPT (touchless Wireless Power Transfer) to the world. With that said, we are happy to announce that yesterday, the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), Technical Point of Contact (TPOC) accepted WiGL’s Task II (2) Deliverables.

Task II was arguably one of the hardest tasks WiGL was contracted to complete.

Here’s what the government requested:

Task II: Quantify power transmission yield 

1). Load inventory:

In collaboration with TPOC and end users, generate use profiles (voltage and current versus time) of devices to be powered and charged.

2). Receiver (Rx)-load fit:

For a range of device classes, and within the WiGL integrated Transmitter (Tx) network and frequency, match the Rx antenna assemblies to meet expected load profiles.

3). Generate power use scenarios:

Based on the load profiles, generate transmitted power needs for standard (“normal”), enhanced (enhanced power needs), or critical use (highest priority).

Deliverables: 

  • WiGL-enabled Rx adapted to load profiles across device classes (cellphones, radios, tablets, GPS, etc.).
  • Protocols to adapt power transmission to level of use (normal/enhanced/critical).

Acceptance Criteria: 

  • End user accepts range of device classifications and use profiles.

Huge thanks to PowerCast and Guinn Partners for the engineering support. Team WiGL was able to meet the Task II requirements ahead of schedule.

Here’s what WiGL delivered: 

Task II: Quantify power transmission yield 

1). WiGL visited an undisclosed Air Force Base (AFB) in May 2022 to determine devices for Task #6 (Demo)

  • Two mission critical lithium-ion battery powered devices were selected.
  1. The 1st device has a nominal voltage = 3.6V / 16.2 Wh
  2. For charging, the device requires a charge voltage = 3.6V / 4400 mA
  • The 2nd device(s) support the Android Tactical Awareness Kit (ATAK) (lithium-ion battery power Apple and Samsung devices)
  1. Apple and Samsung devices nominal voltage = 3.85V / 17.33 Wh
  2. For charging, these devices require a charge voltage = 4.4V / 4500 mAh

2) Receiver (Rx)- load Fit:

  • WiGL used commercial off the shelf (COTS) Tx’s and Rx’s, and a proprietary external device (ED) to meet the 3-5V power needs of the

Mission critical device + Apple and Samsung devices.

  • The initial design is an external dongle device (USB) that attaches to the devices.
  • The WiGL enabled ED USB is designed to increase the usage time of the end user device by >30%.
  • The ED consists of antennas and Rx, stage A and B rechargeable batteries, and a boost converter
  • The boost converter boosts 3.7 to 5V
  • Based on current results, the ED is able to recharge the end user devices in the similar amount of time as if plugged into a wall/charger 

As some of you who have invested might be aware, WiGL’s World Fair 2.0 (WWF 2.0) is a big deal for WiGL. This groundbreaking COTS demonstration for AFRL and the Department of Defense is designed to firmly establish WiGL as the dominant name for tWPT.  As our commitment to those who have shown belief in WiGL, we are excited to share what is currently going on during this stage in WiGL’s development process.

If updates on WWF 2.0 is something you want to stay abreast of, please visit us at startengine.com/wigl to learn more. Please continue to join us on this journey to solve the energy problems that plague our society today.

Thanks to you all, and we cannot wait to share more with you in the future.
