08 Oct 14. Lincad has been awarded three new R&D contracts by the MOD. This will provide the funding required for the company to take the development of three key new products through to the production stage. Lincad has been at the forefront of developing specialist solutions for the MOD’s battery and charger requirements for over 12 years. Over that time, through a process of mechanical refinement and the use of cutting edge cell technology, the company has consistently delivered products that have helped to reduce the load that soldiers in the field have to carry, with no loss of efficiency or reliability.
08 Oct 14. Revision Military, a world leader in protective soldier solutions, has expanded its capabilities by adding power provision and management to its roster of integrated technologies with the development of two new NervCentr™ Lithium ion rechargeable energy storage systems: The NervCentr SharePack and the NervCentr Lightweight Assault Battery. Just two of several ongoing developments within the power and data systems management area, the initial V 1.0 versions of the SharePack and Lightweight Assault Battery are being demonstrated at AUSA, with user trials and evaluations scheduled to start in late Q4 and continue through Q1 of 2015 with a projected ready-for-market target of Q2, 2015. The NervCentr SharePack power management system is capable of powering a wide range of electronic devices simultaneously, offers wide programmable input and output voltage, flexibility, upgradable software and is a seamless plug-and-play solution. It can harvest power quickly from equipment such as a solar blanket or vehicle. The multi-functional LCD display provides real-time data on the battery capacity, as well as details on connected equipment and available power – all designed to provide the soldier with power supply peace of mind so he can concentrate fully on the mission. The NervCentr Lightweight Assault Battery is a low-profile, rechargeable lithium ion battery that packs the energy needed for a 12 hour mission. Weighing less than a pound, the battery is small enough to fit into a magazine pouch. It offers a high power density to power currently fielded equipment while reducing the weight burden of spare batteries and features a push button activated state-of-charge display.
