Next-Gen Wireless Power
WiGL is changing the way we power our devices.
It’s a wireless-power company that aims to send targeted energy, meant to power your smartphone and other devices, through the air. And it does this through networks called Wireless-Electric Grid Local Air Networks, or WiGLs, for short (pronounced “wiggle”).
A WiGL works just like traditional Wi-Fi. But instead of transmitting and receiving Wi-Fi data, a WiGL-enabled transmitter uses the same raw radio frequencies (RF) as noise, and harvests these frequencies as raw power. WiGL transmits the RF to a WiGL-enabled receiver that’s connected to a device, providing it with continuous energy.
With WiGL, you can potentially power your devices on the move, and even use your phone while its battery recharges.
WiGL is targeting the twenty-five-billion-dollar market for charging solutions. In today’s tech-centric world, “smart” devices operate 24/7, meaning they require reliable charges. Traditional batteries can be expensive, require long charging times, and lose power over time.
WiGL’s technology represents an improvement over traditional charging.
This company plans to generate revenue through the following:
• Software subscription fees that will range from $6.99 to $29.99 per month.
• Hardware licensing fees that will include charging around twenty cents for each device containing a WiGL transmitter.
• Direct equipment sales that commercialize its products with WiGL technology. These devices will range from ten dollars to $250.
• Finally, trademark licensing will integrate WiGL into all wirelessly chargeable products.
In 2017, WiGL tested a first series prototype of its technology. The next year, it secured its first patent.
In 2020, the company completed a successful demonstration of its system with a Department of Defense fighter helmet. It also proved it could charge a cellphone through a demonstration with Virginia Tech, one of its partners.
Dr. Glover is the inventor of WiGL’s technology. He has successfully directed and managed large-scale energy transfer programs for the Department of Defense for more than thirty years. Additionally, he has served as a strategic technical advisor for the Federal Aviation Administration.
Prior to starting WiGL, he served twenty-three years in the U.S. Air Force, where he led high-tech acquisitions programs overseeing space and special operations programs.
Ahmad holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Mount Olive College, an MBA from Cameroon University, and a Doctorate in Business Administration from Touro University.
Cherif is the co-inventor of WiGL’s technology. He is a scholar and noted expert with more than thirty years of experience in radio frequency energy transfer.
Prior to WiGL, he worked in leadership roles at Draper Laboratories, BAE Systems, and MIT. He holds a Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Fairleigh Dickinson University, and an advanced degree in Communication Studies from UCLA.
Craig leads WiGL’s product development initiative following a three-decade career with the U.S. Air Force.
While serving, he was an instructor pilot and totaled more than 3,000 hours of flight time. He also instructed at the Air Force’s Fighter Weapons School, made famous in the action movie “Top Gun.”
He holds two Master’s degrees in Strategic Intelligence and Strategic Studies.
Marie has more than twenty years of experience in Business Development for the semiconductor industry. She holds a degree in Contract Law and Paralegal Studies from Santa Clara University.
