Cobasys Supplies NiMH Packs for Army Heavy Duty Hybrids
15 May 2007
The Military Utility Assessment (MUA) testing began in March by the soldiers in Ft. Lewis, Washington where the vehicles were placed in operational service to begin performing a variety of mission simulations.
Cobasys was chosen to supply a system to the Army’s Future Tactical Truck System (FTTS) based on one of their standard products, the NiMHax 336-70. The complete energy storage system, using four NiMHax 336-70 sub-packs, is capable of producing more than 280 kW and provides more than 11 kWh of energy.
The FTTS heavy-duty hybrid program is part of the Army’s efforts to develop their next generation of tactical wheeled vehicles known as Maneuver Sustainment Vehicle (MSV). The military selected the NiMHax 336-280V system because Cobasys is the only North American manufacturer supplying ‘plug-and-play’ NiMH battery systems for hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) heavy-duty applications.
