Analytic Systems announces new C-IED contract
Analytic Systems has announced that it has received one of its largest contracts to date from Anniston Army Depot for an IED Defeat Programme. The company announced that it has modified its existing military battery charger, the LIAC600-28, for the programme.
Analytic Systems is part of four separate IED defeat programmes, providing a number of different COTS and customised products. Its LIAC600-28 to be provided under this contract is already used by the US Army and USMC in their ITAS weapons System for this anti-IED application.
Under the programme, Analytic Systems has been working with Michigan Technological University (MTU) since January 2010 to provide the modified battery charger that powers a new mine roller system that is expected to bring increased protection to troops against IEDs.
The US military has fielded a mine roller technology in Afghanistan since 2008, and improvements have been continually made to the roller technology as the threat evolves. The US Army TARDEC's Mechanical Countermine Team are the engineering lead for the SPARK rollers.
The new roller called the Self-protection Adaptive Roller Kit II (SPARK II), attaches to the front of vehicles and detonates roadside bombs before they can harm service members riding in the cab. One of the most useful features of the new system is the ability to change distance from the vehicle to the roller.
