Lafayette, Colorado. March 31, 2015: NISHATI, INC. MADE ITS FIRST DELIVERY OF SOLAR ARRAYS FOR THE AISPCA BLANKET PURCHASE AGREEMENT (BPA) TO THE U.S. MARINE CORPS (USMC) UNDER A SUBCONTRACT FROM ATLANTIC DIVE SUPPLY (ADS, INC.)
ADS, Inc. will use the PAM™ Expedition Solar Arrays (GSA Advantage: Portable Array Module) manufactured by Nishati, Inc. to meet AISPCA requirements. PAM™ Expedition is a ruggedized, lightweight solar array that packages into a small volume and deploys in minutes. It is designed to maximize solar energy capture while minimizing weight, size and complexity. PAM™ Expedition provides portable, durable, and effective solar power for the expeditionary environment.
This delivery marks the completion of the transition the PAM™ Expedition from a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) prototype to a truly commercial product.
“The supply chain and final assembly team have proven itself through this first of many deliveries scheduled for the U.S. Marines,” Nishati CEO Robert Charette Col. RET said in a statement.
“The innovative PAM™ Expedition utilizes new technologies and products for several of its components, which required the development of commercial scale and quality manufacturing processes as part of the commercialization process over the last year,” Charette said.
“PAM Expedition is a true SBIR success story. A commercial SBIR-developed product is being deployed to the fleet improving combat effectiveness by reducing the need for logistics resupply of fuel and batteries,” Nishati CBDO Mike Tupper said.
