GRC wins Phase I of AFWERX Programme


19 May 2020 Austin - GRC - Green Revolution Cooling, an expert in single-Phase immersion cooling for data centres, has won Phase I of the AFWERX Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) award, to collaborate with US military installations worldwide.

The AFWERX SBIR, established in 2017, is a team of technology innovators within the US Air Force that use a collaborative approach to combine start-up companies' urgency with the largest pool of motivated talent in the world. Their mission is to uncover opportunities to improve military capabilities, connect and engage the right stakeholders, and facilitate strategic defense outcomes.

As part of the Phase I award for its single-phase immersion-cooling technology, GRC is now tasked with identifying a military customer to mutually share the funding provided by AFWERX. Once GRC and their chosen military partner agree to collaborate they will share in the AFWERX fund, enabling them to identify and engineer a single-phase immersion-cooling solution that is a key innovation for the military partner's defense readiness.

"It has been wonderful to partner with the AFWERX team on this new immersion-cooling solution", stated Thomas Kenny, Vice President, Enterprise Sales at GRC. "The partnership will enable us and the military partner chosen from all the applicants to develop an immersion-cooled infrastructure that will deliver automated and efficient solutions, and defense readiness. GRC looks forward to expanding our solutions to all military installations, helping them to meet their mission critical demands. Once we make it through all the phases of the programme, we will share in a special fund that provides resources separate from the installations' yearly allocated budget."

In 2018, GRC and an Air Force base in the United States were awarded the AFWERX contract that led to the development of GRC's new ICEtank TM IT40UPS modular, containerized data centre. A team of GRC and Air Force engineers worked endless hours and months to develop this custom immersion-cooled data centre that was deployed to the Air Force base in January 2020. The ICEtank IT40UPS has resulted in 100% uptime and significantly reduced power usage and is now available for deployment as a key solution to enable defense readiness for all military installations and IT professional and business leaders around the world.
