February 16, 2016 Melbourne, Florida – Oakridge Global Energy Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB: “OGES”) is excited to announce that Maritime Tactical Systems, Inc., MARTAC recently conducted very successful field trials on the Intercoastal waterway in Palm Bay, Florida. MARTAC is a Melbourne, Florida based company that designs and produces the Man-Portable Tactical Autonomous Systems (MANTAS) that can reach extreme high speeds and operate anywhere in the world. These vehicles are designed to be used in numerous applications including naval fleet protection, mine warfare, port and harbor security patrol, anti-piracy, search and rescue, and many others.

“The custom battery design for MARTAC was quite challenging while at the same time exciting for our team,” said OGES Executive Chairman and CEO, Steve Barber. “We are pleased to have been a part of this huge success for the MARTAC team and look forward to working with them as we both move forward. We at Oakridge truly enjoy working with fantastic teams and exciting products, and MARTAC has both. We congratulate MARTAC on this successful field trial.”

On January 25 through January 28, 2016 MARTAC held field trials for a major defense
contractor utilizing several different sizes of their high speed maritime vessels in the Indian River in Palm Bay, Florida, powered by custom-tailored, high performance, Oakridge batteries, designed and produced by Oakridge specifically for Martac’s application. These trials were a major success and left all participants exceptionally pleased with the results.

“We were ecstatic with the custom Oakridge Energy Units designed for and utilized on the MANTAS platforms. They have taken our energy requirements and brought them to a whole new level in terms of density, efficiency, reliability and longevity” says MARTAC President/CEO Bruce Hanson. “Oakridge stepped up to the plate and knocked it out of the park. They have greatly expanded the effective range of the MANTAS while at the same time providing us a much safer vessel that can be utilized in many environments where present energy technology is not allowed due to safety concerns. This is a winning combo.”
