DESIGN CHALLENGE

Current last-mile vaccine delivery technologies rely on unreliable ice-based cooling, which results in hundreds of millions of dollars of wasted goods annually. Stone Cold Systems was designed to enable reliable cold transport and storage where electric infrastructure is off-grid, intermittent or destroyed. SCS does this by combining state of the art communications technologies with proven thermal electric cooling powered by lithium-iron batteries and controlled by proprietary hybrid charging algorithms. In 2018 3SD won an International Design Excellence Award for Social Impact Design for SCS
