PALM BEACH, Fla., Oct. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Digital Solutions, Inc. (GDSI), a company that is positioning itself as a leader in providing cyber arms manufacturing, complementary security and technology solutions and knowledge-based, cyber-related, culturally attuned social consulting in unsettled areas, today announced that, after careful review, it has decided to take the next step toward commercial viability for the patented thermoacoustic technology owned by Cool Sound Industries, Inc. (CSI). GDSI plans to enter into discussions with an international manufacturing corporation to jointly develop a working prototype.
As announced on August 29, 2013, GDSI signed an exclusive letter of intent to acquire CSI, a pioneer in harnessing sound waves to provide sustainable, eco-friendly ways to power heat-pumping systems such as air-conditioners, refrigerators and heating systems. GDSI believes thermoacoustic technology (TA) has the potential for game-changing defense-related and commercial applications. If the acquisition is completed as expected, CSI will continue to operate as a subsidiary of GDSI. The exclusive agreement is subject to the completion of due diligence reviews by both companies and certain other conditions.
"After reviewing the technology carefully, we decided to take the next step toward commercial viability and developing the game-changing potential of CSI's patented thermoacoustic technology," said GDSI's President and CEO Richard J. Sullivan. "We're very excited about entering into discussions with an international manufacturing company in the high-technology space to jointly develop a working prototype. We think TA technologies are poised for strong near and long-term growth because they could eventually supplant most of the current, climate-damaging, high-maintenance, vapor-compression applications. The next step in the process is to develop a working prototype, and we're very encouraged that we'll be able to do that relatively soon."
CSI's patented technology efficiently induces high-amplitude sound waves into a mixture of harmless gases which creates oscillations in pressure, temperature and volume. The oscillations are then harnessed to drive eco-friendly air conditioning, heating and refrigeration systems. The mechanical simplicity of thermoacoustic engines eliminates the need for gears, pistons, valves, timing chains and lubrication, which most conventional compressors are totally dependent upon and they need more frequent maintenance. Thermoacoustic engines may be expected to last two-to-three times longer than most conventional air-conditioning systems and can be designed to run on lower voltages from solar cells, batteries or the standard power grid and can even be designed to convert waste heat into sound waves that can power heat pumping systems.
Here is a checklist of the comparative advantages of TA technology over conventional air-conditioning and refrigeration systems:
- No ozone depletion
- No greenhouse effects
- High energy efficiency using the existing power grid
- Compatible with solar power applications
- Low initial equipment costs
- No maintenance costs
- Very long operating life cycle

About Cool Sound Industries, Inc.
Cool Sound Industries was established as a commercial platform to bring together the various technical disciplines required to successfully develop residential and commercial air-conditioning and heating applications for thermoacoustic technology. Frank Wighard, the company's founder, has over 35 years of experience in the design, installation and service of environmental control equipment (air-conditioning systems). In the late 1990s, Mr. Wighard recognized the potential benefits thermoacoustic technology could provide to the field of air-conditioning and financed the initial feasibility study to start his investigation by collaborating with the leading researchers in 1996. After analyzing the results of the feasibility study, he filed the initial patent for his double-acting driver and system configurations which improved the efficiency and heat transfer process to make them more suitable for air-conditioning applications. He has since proposed numerous improvements to his basic design. His early involvement and consulting activities have resulted in valuable business relationships that will benefit the launch and future success of the company. Visit http://www.coolsound.us
