Item 1.01 – Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

Effective July 12, 2019, Applied Energetics, Inc. was awarded a multi-phase program contract by a global defense contractor which was listed by CNBC in January 2019 as a “top ten defense contractor, by sales.” The contract calls for feasibility analysis, proof of principle, initial system design, and lab-based testing and evaluation of a frequency agile fiber laser system, utilizing various nonlinear processes to demonstrate laser output across multiple bands in the spectrum. The company believes that this system could also be coupled to currently deployed technologies to assist in a number of critical U.S. Department of Defense mission areas and shows promise for multiple advanced commercial applications.
