Analytic Systems wins US Army Contract

Surrey, BC, Canada

Close Combat Weapons Systems (CCWS) of Redstone Arsenal, Alabama has awarded Analytic Systems a continuing order for a COTS military battery charger, the LIAC600-28. This charger is specifically designed to
recharge the Saft America Lithium-Ion battery that is an integral part of the Humvee mounted ITAS weapons system. The battery charger is also vehicle mounted and will operate from any source of AC (from 90 to 240 VAC and 45 – 440 Hertz). The charger is designed to be used in extreme environments and was the first in a series of watertight power conversion products that now include a power supply and DC/DC converter. A DC-DC version is also available, LIDC600-24-28.

This order continues the 5-year contract by the US Army and marks the start of the US Marine Corps ITAS acquisition. The Canadian military has placed their initial order for a low temperature model, LIAC600LT-28 that will operate to -60 degrees Celsius, which will have its own NATO Stock Number: NSN 6130-20-002-2433.

The LIAC600-28 is designed to recharge and communicate with the newest of Saft America’s, Lithium-Ion batteries, but can also operate as a stand-alone power supply. The LIAC600-28 uses the same power switching core design as the Modern Burner Unit (MBU) power supply that the company has produced thousands of and are used around the world in US Army Field Kitchens. Like the MBU power supply, the LIAC600-28
meets MIL-STD 461E and passes the stringent US army Loose Cargo Test.
