FNSS HYBRID Power Pack development project started in 2021. FNSS have initially showcased the KAPLAN HYBRID Vehicle for the first time at IDEF 2023 International Defence Industry Fair in July 2023. The assembly of the first prototype vehicle was completed and control software development and improvement activities continue with the collaboration of E-Mobility & Advanced Design Solutions, Automotive Systems, Electronic Design, Software Development, Simulation and Test teams within the FNSS R&D centre. The critical verification tests have started and to be completed by the end of 2023. With this project, FNSS aims to develop a unique hybrid power pack solution that can be integrated into tracked platforms in its product range and likely to be produced in the future, and integrated to a wide range of tracked vehicles if required by the users worldwide.
