Lincad won further orders to supply additional batteries and chargers for Thales' STORM-H, an ultra-compact, lightweight Electronic Countermeasures (ECM) system designed to protect individuals against Radio Controlled Improvised Explosive Devices (RCIED).
In addition to protecting specialist military personnel such as observers, mentors, dog handlers and engineers who operate in small, detached teams,STORM-H can also be used for domestic emergencies that require a response from combined civilian and military services. Providing first responders with a lightweight, unobtrusive, ‘turn on and forget’ capability that operates in conjunction with other systems,STORM-H can also be easily installed on unmanned search vehicles.
“Thales is a long-standing Lincad client and we’re delighted that they are continuing to rely on us for the specialist batteries and chargers that the innovative Storm-H requires," Peter Slade, Lincad’s Joint Managing Director, commented. "This new order is further evidence of our ability to meet the most exacting military power management demands.”
Well-established at the forefront of lithium-ion battery technology and design, Lincad has been developing batteries and chargers for the UK MOD and defence primes since 1986. Applications range from man-portable equipment to artillery pointing systems and robotic vehicles.
Lincad’s full range of batteries and chargers will be on display at Eurosatory 2018, this week.
