=== Jan.27-30, 2004 ===

Mr. D.Q. Yang, CTO of Powerzinc, and Dr. S.T. Hsieh, Special Advisor of CEO of Powerzinc, were invited to attend the conference of ¡°Tactical Power Sources 2004¡± held in Crystal City, close to Pentagon on Jan.27-30, 2004, hosted by IDGA.

The Institute for Defense and Government Advancement (IDGA) is an organization having great influence on decision makers of military, government and defense industries. IDGA¡¯s mission is to inform leaders in government and defense of the latest innovations and best practice related to joint transformation, logistics and procurement, operations, strategy and plans, and information warfare. Besides, IDGA bridges the military and government with industries.

Due to the rapid growing of the electronic and informational technologies of the armed forces, the gap between the demand and supply of the power are desperately increased. That¡¯s why IDGA hosted this conference to evaluate the problems and possible solutions of the tactical power sources for present and the future. About 200 attendees came from industries, enterprises, institutes, universities and different departments of military. Almost all the speakers are military professionals. Their lectures even include the feedbacks from the soldiers, the complain of unsatisfactory energy and weight of the existing standard batteries equipped. Besides, the more electronic equipments equipped, the more energy needed. Military hopes the industries bridge the gap as quick as possible.

It was a surprise, the Chief of Army Power Division, U.S.Army CERDEC, eulogizes the highest energy density of the primary zinc air battery in his lecture, ¡°Portable Power Source for the Soldier¡±.

Chief of the Power Source Branch, U.S. Army CECOM, encourages to use primary zinc air battery as an energy source to recharge the standard battery equipped in his lecture, ¡°Portable Power for the Warfighter¡±.

Representative from Power & Energy Systems, Natick Soldier Systems Center, asks to lower the burden of soldiers by reducing the weight of the portable batteries and increasing the energy content.

Marine Corps. has the same requirement about the primary zinc air battery.

Merely from the above few examples, it¡¯s enough to know that the military has the immediate demand and enough understanding of the zinc air battery.
