UEC Unveils New Hybrid Power System

UEC Electronics, a subsidiary of Arotech Corporation (NasdaqGM: ARTX), unveiled its new 3.5kW Man Portable Hybrid Power Management System to the Department of Defense (DoD).  This latest system is a prototype which satisfies an upcoming solicitation for the Mobile Electric Hybrid Power System Lite (MEHPS‐Lite).  Following the success of the Ground Renewable Expeditionary Energy Network System (GREENS) renewable 1kW system, the hybrid system is designed to optimize efficiency and extend the life of generators by reducing generator run time by up to 70% resulting in reduced fuel consumption, maintenance burden, and logistical support.  The system is not dependent on solar; however, it is able to collect and store up to 3kW of solar energy if available.  With or without solar, the key element is the energy storage and management system.
