Lincad wins batteries and chargers contract from Thales

Posted 11 June 2018 · Add Comment

British manufacturer of bespoke batteries, chargers and power management systems for military applications, Lincad, has won further orders from defence prime, Thales.



Lincad will supply additional batteries and chargers for the Storm-H (above), an ultra-compact, lightweight Electronic Countermeasures (ECM) system designed to protect individuals against Radio Controlled Improvised Explosive Devices (RCIED).

In addition to protecting specialist military personnel such as observers, mentors, dog handlers and engineers who operate in small, detached teams, Storm-H can also be used for domestic emergencies that require a response from combined civilian and military services. Providing first responders with a lightweight, unobtrusive, ‘turn on and forget’ capability that operates in conjunction with other systems, Storm-H can also be easily installed on unmanned search vehicles.

Peter Slade, Lincad’s Joint Managing Director, commented: “Thales is a long-standing Lincad client and we’re delighted that they are continuing to rely on us for the specialist batteries and chargers that the innovative Storm-H requires. This new order is further evidence of our ability to meet the most exacting military power management demands.”

Well-established at the forefront of lithium-ion battery technology and design, Lincad has been developing batteries and chargers for the UK MoD and defence primes since 1986. Applications range from man-portable equipment to artillery pointing systems and robotic vehicles.

Recognised as a world leader in designing and building mission-critical information systems for defence and security, aerospace and transportation, Thales has pioneered the development of market-leading electronic warfare and ECM equipment for a wide variety of governments and forces around the world.

Lincad’s full range of batteries and chargers will be on display at the forthcoming Eurosatory defence and security exhibition in Paris between the 11th and 15th June.
