Lockheed Martin Selects Saft as Advanced Li-ion Battery Supplier for U.S. Armed Services Joint Light Tactical Vehicle Program

Saft has been selected by the Lockheed Martin Team for advanced Li-ion battery systems to power Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTVs) for the production phase of the program. The JLTV program, led by the U.S. Army, is a multi-service initiative to develop a family of next-generation, lightweight vehicles that will replace many of the High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs) currently used across the armed forces. JLTV will provide a family of vehicles (FOV) that are capable of performing multiple mission roles. They are designed to provide protected, sustained, networked mobility for personnel and payloads across the full range of military operations. JLTV objectives include increased protection and performance over the current fleet minimizing ownership costs by maximizing commonality, fuel efficiency, reliability, and growth throughout the lifecycle. Saft’s selection for the production phase follows the company’s participation as the battery supplier for the Lockheed Martin Team during the JLTV program’s engineering and manufacturing development (EMD) phase, and successfully completing the government’s Production Readiness Review (PRR) for the JLTV in September. Saft’s Li-ion battery system will provide starting, lights, ignition and silent watch mission capabilities, while also producing critical mobile power to recharge personal electronics like night sights and GPS devices. The system features an advanced, lightweight design within the dimensions of a traditional lead-acid battery, enabling easy integration into the vehicle. The 28V, 60Ah battery achieves higher, more compact power and energy efficiency; enabling fewer battery replacements and reducing lifecycle costs.

Saft Releases Xcelion 6T Battery for Powering Military Vehicles

Saft announced the release of its Xcelion 6T battery for powering military vehicles. The Xcelion 6T is a lithium-ion (Li-ion) drop-in replacement of lead-acid batteries that provides equivalent power of two (2) lead-acid batteries at a quarter of the weight and half the volume. The launch signals the conclusion of a two-year industrialisation programme, in which Saft successfully reduced the cost of the Xcelion 6T to increase its commercialisation and create a versatile off-the-shelf product. As modern military operations shift away from the frontline, the need to power the plethora of emerging sensors and communication systems installed in today’s military vehicles is putting a strain on current power systems. Saft’s Xcelion 6T leverages Li-ion technology to offer many benefits over lead-acid, such as longer life, higher energy density, and lower total cost of ownership. As a result, the Xcelion 6T enhances the capabilities of military vehicles, supporting extended silent watch operations (engine off mode) and a multitude of technologies on the vehicle that must run on battery power. In the long term, Xcelion 6T will reduce logistical burdens to stow, transport and distribute replacement batteries. This translates to over $200 million of savings in total cost of ownership for a fleet of 20,000 vehicles over a 20 year life. With a market size of 700,000 lead-acid batteries acquired per year by the military, Saft is positioned to achieve widespread adoption of its Xcelion 6T battery to offer tremendous cost savings to the end-user. The Saft Xcelion 6T is a 28V, 60Ah Li-ion battery system that is designed within the dimensions of a traditional lead-acid battery, enabling easy installation into the vehicle. The system provides power for starting, lights and ignition, as well as safety critical devices during silent watch missions, such as sensors, jammers, communication and control equipment. It also features available CANBus communications that relays vital information, including state-of-charge, state-of-health, cell voltages, temperatures and battery diagnostics. The Xcelion 6T has already been chosen for the Thales Hawkei vehicle and by Lockheed Martin for its Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) offering. In the first quarter of 2015, Saft delivered Xcelion 6T batteries for use in the Hawkei’s prototype vehicles. A follow-on contract is expected to support Hawkei initial production in the fourth quarter of 2015. Saft’s Xcelion 6T has completed all qualification tests, including United Nations (UN) transportation certification. It also has a NATO Stock Number, which will expand the market for the battery.
