Lincad to supply batteries for Japanese acoustic weapon locator HALO system

Posted 1 June 2018 · Add Comment

Lincad, the UK designer and manufacturer of bespoke batteries, chargers and power management systems for military and other specialist applications, has won an important new contract from the Japanese Sojitz Aerospace Corporation.



Under the terms of the contract, Lincad will be supplying batteries for the HALO (Hostile Artillery Locator) used by the Japanese Ministry of Defence.

HALO employs passive acoustic location techniques to detect the source of artillery fire at ranges of up to 30km. Virtually immune to countermeasures, it can provide almost instant data on hostile firing positions.

The HALO battery is a 24V, 80Ah battery, based on Lincad’s LIPS 6 and is engineered to the highest mechanical and environmental specifications, to provide a robust and reliable power source.
 
Peter Slade, Lincad’s Joint Managing Director, commented: “Lincad has a long and successful record of providing specialist batteries for military applications. We’re delighted to receive further orders from Sojitz in Japan, demonstrating the quality and value that we can offer to international customers.”

At the forefront of lithium-ion battery technology, Lincad is constantly taking product performance to new limits, producing lighter, more powerful batteries with faster, more flexible charging solutions.
