You’ll Never Believe How One Defense Contractor Is Using Graphene

Editor’s Note: The below transcript is part of a rare, exclusive interview with Dr. Kent Moors. The full video and transcript is available for a limited time right here.

The smarter defense contractors have realized that they have to diversify out of pure warfare technologies…  

And one under-the-radar player in the defense sector has the solution to this Zero Line Crisis and many future conflicts.

99% of all water on this planet is saltwater.

And India has 4,671 miles of coastline to tap into that saltwater.

A new approach to desalination is the key to solving this Zero Line Crisis.

Now, the “old fashioned,” desalination technology is five times more expensive at converting saltwater to freshwater than just extracting it from groundwater, lakes, and rivers.

Because it relies on thick filters to separate the salt from the water.

A stack of paper – three reams worth – measures about six inches high.

This is the thickness of the current desalination filters.

Now, remove just one of these sheets.

A single sheet…

This represents the width of the desalination filter this defense contractor has developed.

Besides being ultra-thin, this desalination filter is…

  • 1,000 times stronger than existing technologies.
  • It can convert saltwater to freshwater 100 times faster.
  • And it uses 1/100th – that’s 1% – of the energy it previously took.

Desalination now becomes economically viable in even the poorest countries.

It becomes economically viable to the 780 million people who can’t access clean drinking water now.

Mike:

Kent, talk about this filter’s secret.

Kent:

graphene

It’s built with a “miracle material” called graphene.

At 1-atom thick, graphene is the thinnest material on the planet.

It’s more flexible than rubber.

Yet, it’s stronger than diamonds – 300 times stronger than steel.

Mike, graphene is so strong it can literally remove radioactive elements from water that’s been contaminated from a nuclear spill.

You could drink that water right after it runs through this filter.

Mike:

And it’s not a rare material.

Kent:

No, it’s an advanced material – extracted from graphite – with massive potential for numerous applications.

This defense contractor was one of the early innovators with graphene.

I was sent their internal memo that reveals this desalination breakthrough.

Originally they had been working with graphene in what they called their “core markets, including aircraft and spacecraft.

Then they discovered that they could use it to:

Revolutionize the process of desalination by making it far more efficient and less expensive.”

So they threw their big guns behind this…

They combined the leaders of their Mission Systems and Training, Advanced Technology Laboratories and Space Systems” departments.

And they developed and patented a desalination breakthrough that internally…

They’re calling a “game-changer.”

Mike:

And this technology could stop the Zero Line Crisis from escalating into a “worst-case scenario?”

Kent:

Let me put it this way, Mike.

Coincidentally, around the same time this technology was first presented, India committed to building 500 desalination plants by 2017.

Talking dollars and cents…

India is now allocating $92.1 billion a year – that’s a year – towards solving this water crisis.

And coincidentally again – I know for a fact – the Indian government is going to cut big checks… we’re talking checks totaling many billions of dollars…

They are being quietly directed to the company that controls this incredible filter.

The contracts are signed.

Here’s another coincidence…

This company has already set up shop in India.

They now have an office in New Delhi.

Mike:

And Pakistan has started to do their part as well?

Kent:

They have.

Pakistan has committed $300 billion towards water technology.

They recently built 12 desalination plants.

And a massive one is currently in the works in Karachi.

Now here’s another coincidence…

This same company, with this miraculous desalination technology…

It has already secured very large contracts with Pakistan as well.

I’m not much for coincidences Mike.

Mike:

Kent, here at Money Morning, we’ve been helping people capitalize on military and defense technologies for years.

So let’s put this opportunity in perspective…

What’s the profit potential for this company – thanks to its graphene-based, desalination filter?

Kent:

Factoring in just the most conservative growth rates for this technology, it could propel this defense contractor’s share price up 464%.

But Mike, that’s a conservative estimate.

This contractor has big plans for taking what they’ve learned from this graphene breakthrough.

That internal memo – they hint at this.

They’re going to apply a variation of this technology to “sensors in electronics platforms and other structural applications.”

That’s going to be a $7 trillion a year global industry.

They’re also going to expand it into “biopharmaceutical” uses – another big deal.

Early research suggests graphene, when used as a delivery mechanism, can create a 1,000-fold boost to the effectiveness of cancer drugs.

They are also looking to use graphene to maximize output from “oil and gas wells.”

Mike:

So really – 464% gains is a jumping off point.

Kent:

Folks can consider two or three times that in play as this develops.

Plus, besides capital gains – you’re looking at a company that has raised its dividend price aggressively, each year, for the last 11 years.

But here’s a really exciting glimpse into the future.

Their dividend has risen 101% – it’s more than doubled – since before they developed this desalination technology.

They know what’s coming.
