Military Space Cloud Architecture (MILSCA) will be able to store more than 100 Terabytes of data generated on Earth and in space on board each constellation satellite with a processing power exceeding 250 TFLOPS (250,000 billion operations per second).
EDF tests tactical mobile Hybrid Power Station
The Estonian Defence Forces (EDF) tested the Intracom Defense Electronics (IDE) tactical mobile Hybrid Power Station during the 15th Spring Storm exercise, it was announced on 21 June.
The test focused on the hybrid tactical mobile generator’s performance for reduced fuel consumption and maintenance requirements and also for its operational capability to provide power under True Silent Watch, during covert operations.
IDE’s Hybrid Electrical Power System (HEPS) product family provides power supply solutions for stationary and mobile applications, as well as customised integrated solutions for military vehicles.
HEPS optimises power availability at the minimum running cost, using intelligent power management and storage techniques, reducing dramatically downtimes and ensuring availability of the power on demand for hours without thermal or aural trace.
The Estonian exercise 15th Spring Storm took place from 8-25 May 2017.
