General Atomics Supplies LiFT Batteries for SAHRV

General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems (GA-EMS) has been awarded a contract to provide its Lithium-ion Fault Tolerant (LiFT) battery system for the Semi-Autonomous Hydrographic Reconnaissance Vehicle (SAHRV).

SAHRV is a small, portable underwater vehicle (UUV) intended for shallow water surveillance to scan, detect and identify mines and other obstacles..

GA-EMS has been working with the Department of Defense to design, fabricate, deliver, and conduct at-sea testing of the LiFT battery system for use on the SAHRV platform.

Scott Forney, president of GA-EMS said: “The goal of this new contract is to provide a safe, fault-tolerant, high energy density system that achieves the safety certification approvals required for an unlimited ship carry-on capability and to provide the energy needed to maximize mission assurance whenever and wherever the SAHRV is deployed.”
