Hypertronics to provide electrical connectors for FCS MGV

  • 21-May-2009 03:03 EDT
Hypertronics Corp. was awarded a contract by BAE Systems to supply customized electrical connectors for the Traction Drive System (TDS) for the U.S. Army’s Future Combat Systems (FCS) Manned Ground Vehicles (MGV) program. The family of eight FCS MGVs is the first ever Army suite of ground combat vehicles to use hybrid-electric drive technology. Hypertronics will supply a customized interconnect system for the custom power electronics on the common manifold assembly of the TDS that distributes and controls power from the main electric generator power source to the TDS high-voltage battery pack and other vehicle subassemblies. The hybrid-electric drive system will improve fuel economy, reduce overall weight and volume, and generate electric power.
