Leonardo Selected to Provide On-Board Power System for Army, MDA THAAD Vehicle Demonstrators

Jeff Brody

Leonardo DRS has received a contract from the U.S. Army to integrate and demonstrate an on-board vehicle power system for a family of medium tactical vehicles with the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system.

The Army and MDA will test the potential of OBVP technology to deliver electrical energy to THAAD FMTV demonstrators, the company said Friday.

OBVP is designed to generate up to 55 kilowatts of power in a moving vehicle and up to 120kW when stationary.

"We look forward to delivering this technology to the Army to give warfighters numerous power options in the field where the power gap will only increase,” said Bill Guyan, vice president and general manager at Leonardo DRS' land electronics business.
