International Battery has been awarded a contract by the US Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC) to develop a hybrid energy storage solution for combat tanks and Stryker armoured vehicles.

Under the second multiyear TARDEC contract, the company will also develop a hybrid battery system that will incorporate lithium iron phosphate cells for producing energy and ultracapacitors for power.

The new Nato 6T-compatible lithium battery is a hybrid 12V system that can deliver more power and energy and will replace heavier lead-acid batteries.

International Battery CEO Dr Ake Almgren said the new battery technology would help enhance US security and provide increased operational readiness to troops in the battlefield.

The contract also continues advanced development of the non-primary power system (NPS 1160) based on the company’s large-format iron phosphate cells and battery management system (BMS) technology.
