Bishop Ascendant Granted Second United States Patent for Spark Modular Support Platform

U.S. Patent was issued on June 14th for comprehensive capabilities of the Spark system.

West  Caldwell, NJ, June 14th ,2022 – Bishop Ascendant, a multi-arena  innovator in advanced engineering, today announced that the United  States Patent and Trade Office (USPTO) has issued a patent, with all  claims allowed, for its Spark modular support platform. Spark is a  multi-faceted solution to address the global water scarcity crisis,  combining technologies for water filtration, power generation, and  networked internet, satellite and cellular communications, into one  modular, portable and self-sustaining system.

The patent covers the unique design of the Spark modules, mounting various  technologies and sensors, filtering, communications equipment and power  equipment within modules. Spark’s system is designed specifically for  deployment in remote and rural locations, industrial sites, disaster  zones and other areas requiring clean filtered water.

Lightweight and easily deployed, a single Spark unit can provide 7,570 liters of  clean, filtered, potable water per day, enough for up to 1,860 people.  Multiple Sparks can sustain a region of significant size and population.  Additionally, a Spark generates between 60kWh and 120kWh per day,  enough energy to power 40-90 rural households with an average  electricity demand of 39kWh per month. Spark can also provide satellite, cellular, or Local Area Network (LAN)-powered communications to provide high-speed internet and phone service anywhere it is needed. One Spark can support up to 254 connected ethernet devices.

By adopting a modular approach, Spark is tailor-made for re-use and  re-design to any specification. Units are constructed from  military-grade components that have a 15-year life span, making them  durable, long-term solutions.

Bishop Ascendant CEO Justin Bishop stated that “we are very proud of the work  we have done on Spark, this patent further highlights the unique  solution we bring to industrial water treatment market”. Bishop  continued to say “Our engineering team is hard at work developing new  variants of Spark for the mining industry and military applications and  we look forward to being issued more patents in the near future.”
