Austin, Texas (PRWEB) October 24, 2013
Stealth Power is a winner of the 2013 Defense Energy & Utility Technology Challenge. Energy Xtreme’s Stealth Power product is an intelligent mobile electric management system that meets the standards of the U.S. Department of Defense as an innovative energy solution that increases troop safety, lowers energy costs and reduces reliance on foreign energy supplies.
Stealth Power has proven to provide significant tactical and operational benefits such as Silent Watch capability while dramatically reducing fuel usage by eliminating idle time for operational platforms. The system is specifically designed for integration with U.S. military vehicles, providing clean output power for communication/command and control, surveillance, and weapons systems in HMMWVS, MRAPs, Strykers, Bradleys, Abraham Tanks as well as other tactical vehicles. Aptly named, it has low to no thermal or acoustic signature. In battlefield testing, it has proven to improve tactical and mission capabilities by allowing extended operation of equipment without fuel. Additionally, it provides an emergency jumpstart in the event of a disabled or damaged vehicle battery, increasing soldier safety.
“The addition of intelligent energy storage to military tactical vehicle fleets significantly reduces fuel consumption and sustainment costs while increasing survivability and providing an enhanced Silent Watch capability across the force,” remarked Lee Wheelbarger, Energy Xtreme Vice President of Product Development and Military Specialist.
