Cummins has introduced a tactical energy storage unit for military use during the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting & Exposition 2019 in the US.

The company stated that the new storage unit will improve the performance of its advanced medium mobile power sources (AMMPS) generators.

The product provides an integrated power system to support critical military operations.

It is designed to offer enhanced microgrid resilience and reliability while driving down generator maintenance costs.

Cummins Military Programs programme manager Doreen Swanson said: “The Tactical Energy Storage Unit is safe, quiet, and a high-quality product that we are pleased to bring to the US military.

“Cummins has an 80-year history of providing quality service and dependable power solutions to our armed forces and this builds on that legacy. It is an honour to provide products that have a direct impact on improving the safety and wellbeing of US military professionals in the field.”

The new energy storage unit comes with safety features to ensure reliable operation.

These features include high-voltage interlock loop (HVIL) connectors and a master service disconnect component.

Mobile Electric Power Systems product manager lieutenant colonel Tony Leach said: “We are excited to learn more about the new capabilities the Tactical Energy Storage Unit system will offer.”

Using AMMPS with the tactical energy storage unit is expected to reduce the number of fuel transport runs due to improved fuel efficiency.

The system will also ensure quieter operation of the generators and help increase the safety of soldiers in a combat scenario.

Batteries used on the unit provide increased durability in extreme environmental conditions.
