ADF orders Lincad batteries
Lincad is to supply its lithium-ion power system (LIPS) batteries to the Australian Defence Force under a contract announced by the company on 26 April.
The LIPS batteries are ruggedized to meet demanding operational requirements, and have been continuously improved to provide increased capacity and energy density via the integration of new cell technology and enhanced mechanical and electronic design. The batteries are available in a variety of capacity options with alternative communication protocols to suit a range of different applications.
Peter Slade, project manager, Lincad, said: ‘Our ever-developing LIPS batteries have been used by a number of armed forces around the world. As a leading British battery manufacturer, we’re delighted to continue our relationship with the Australian Defence Force to support their developing defence and security requirements.’
