Mobile Power System for Vehicles on Show At AUSA

Aura Systems
: 04 March, 2010  (New Product)
Aura Systems is demonstrating the Viper auxiliary power unit for use on military vehicles at the AUSA ILW exhibition
Aura Systems has announced that its military Viper mobile power solution is being showcased on two vehicles displayed at the AUSA (Association of the US Army) ILW (Institute for Land Warfare) Winter Symposium and Exhibition. Aura’s Viper mobile power solution has been deployed in many military vehicles both in Iraq and Afghanistan as the primary power for the vehicle and power to support required loads. The vehicles featured at AUSA ILW are advanced design vehicles featuring a variety of advanced technologies for maintaining superiority of US forces, a major objective of the symposium and exhibition.

One of the vehicles shown is an army heavy equipment vehicle called an HEMTT Wrecker manufactured by Oshkosh. The vehicle was fielded by ARL (Applied Research Labs), which is a DOD designated University Research Centre. The task is part of ongoing activities in support of US Army TACOM/HTV. ARL had completed a study of mobile power systems last year that highlighted the performance gains of the Viper over traditional power solutions.

A second vehicle is a HMMWV advanced communications vehicle shown by one of the Defence Contractors utilizes both the combined AC and DC capability of the Viper to power both communications loads and cooling equipment to maintain the payload at stable operating temperature. A system, which was a precursor to the new HMMWV, was demonstrated by Aura at the invitation of the Army at an earlier EMIP (Expedited Modernization Initiative Procedure) event.

Mel Gagerman, Aura’s CEO, said, “We are pleased to see the pace of activities with the armed forces increasing. With this show, we see the use of our product expanding from the light tactical vehicles into the heavy tactical vehicle applications. We believe we can make an important contribution to the Army’s mission by providing more electrical power, even at low engine speeds using a fraction of the fuel of the more traditional systems.”
