We are DKS

Direct Kinetic Solutions envisions becoming the power solution for future generations.

What we do

Our team is dedicated to develop, manufacture, and trade Persistent Power Sources (RPS).

These devices harness the high energy density of beta-emitting isotopes and utilize their continuous, and steady emission of energy to generate current that can be utilized to directly power devices, charge chemical batteries, or work as complements to other power sources, such as solar.
