October 31, 2019 Tampa, FL – Locally owned Lithium Battery Co Intl. announced today that 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 of record that was awarded on October 31st, 2019 to General Dynamics Land Systems.
The U.S. Army selected General Dynamics Land Systems for the initial contract of eight-wheeled drive 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 that will help troops carry equipment on the battlefield. The U.S. Army was looking for a vehicle that could carry about 1,000 pounds worth of soldier equipment and travel over 60 miles over three days.
Nathan Staron, CEO of Lithium Battery Co, said that 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 not be able to achieve the requirements for the SMET project. Mr. Staron also said that because of the Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery (LiFePo4) Chemistry they were using, there was zero chance that the batteries could ever 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.
