Tampa, FL, November 01, 2019 –(PR.com)– Locally owned Lithium Battery Co. Intl. announced it will be supplying Lithium Ion Batteries to the U.S. Army Multi-Utility Tactical Transport, or Mutt for its Squad Multipurpose Equipment Transport unmanned ground system program; awarded on October 31, 2019 to General Dynamics Land Systems.
The U.S. Army selected General Dynamics Land Systems for the initial contract of eight-wheeled robotic vehicles using lithium ion batteries totaling $162.4 million from Lithium Battery Company.
General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS) has chosen Lithium Battery Company to produce customized lithium ion batteries for 624 unmanned robotic vehicles designed to help troops carry equipment on the battlefield. The U.S. Army was looking for a vehicle capable of carrying about 1,000 pounds of soldier equipment beyond 60 miles over three days.
Nathan Staron, CEO of Lithium Battery Co Intl. stated, because the lithium ion batteries designed and manufactured by Lithium Battery Co. were light-weight and had the most energy density of any lithium ion batteries, they were able to increase payload for the vehicle without adding extra battery weight. If you were using traditional lead acid or AGM battery weight you would be unable to achieve the requirements for the SMET project. Mr. Staron also said, because of the Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery (LiFePo4) Chemistry used, there was zero chance the batteries could catch fire or explode in combat if they were ever fired upon. Lithium Battery Company manufacturers the safest batteries in the world using their unique LiFePo4 chemistry.
