Advanced Silent Watch hybrid power solutions, independent of vehicle or generator power.
Design and outfit AWG with a power delivery platform enabling advanced Silent Watch capabilities. Enable the training unit to operate EW, SIGINT, Communications, and CUAS capabilities from a mounted platform without an audible signature.
Iris Technology developed and provided a solar rechargeable, methanol fuel cell power solution that provides 125 watts of steady state DC power, silently, and independently of any generator or vehicle. When integrated with Solar technology (SPACES), the power can be intensified to a level of 500 watts during daylight hours. Silent Watch provides an enhanced power management man portable solution for use in OEs where sustainment and lodging are not guaranteed.
Throughout the 96 hour event the unit only used 25% of the battery capacity. The Silent Watch vehicle was never found by the OPFOR using counter SIGINT / EW capabilities.
