The Hybrid GenAirCon system is being integrated into the Hellenic armed forces’ M109 platforms under a contract signed between IDE and BAE Systems Land and Armaments in 2017.

Based on IDE's hybrid electrical power systems product series technology, GenAirCon is a fully integrated power management solution for military vehicles.
