The year of 2022 was a very interesting year for the defense battery market, as things returned to normal after several challenging years in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We at Epsilor witnessed growing interest in our military and civilian products. We are currently participating in several large tenders and 6T Li-Ion batteries are currently tested by potential customers. Here are some of the main events we had this year.
· In June we revealed at Eurosatory 2022 in Paris, a new NATO 6T Li-Ion rechargeable battery in a metal-case that meets the safety requirements of MIL-PRF-32565C (the US Army Performance Specification). This battery, which is equipped with a smart Battery Management System (BMS) with self-charging and self-balancing, is an ideal solution for military armored vehicles and autonomous ground vehicles (AGV).
· In September, at the MSPO Defense Industry Exhibition in Kielce, Poland, we presented together with our local Polish representative MILDAT, our NATO 6T Lithium-Ion battery for armored and military vehicles and heavy-duty applications, which offers four times more energy than in a typical AGM 6T Lead Acid battery.
· In early October, eCastle, which represents Epsilor in the Australian defense market, presented Epsilor’s COMBATT lithium-ion 6T NATO-standard ELI-52526B rechargeable battery, alongside other smart military and professional batteries and chargers, at the LAND FORCES International Land Defence Exposition, which took place in Brisbane, Australia.
· In November, we had an excellent opportunity to meet with our international customers in the marine industry at METSTRADE 2022, where we presented a complete line of marine grade smart batteries, offering the optimal replacement for traditional batteries.
As we look ahead for 2023, we think that the massive procurement programs of many defence forces around the world, open for us new business opportunities to supply our promising smart military batteries.
Epsilor’s batteries offer the best solution for any customer that has acknowledged the advantage of Li-Ion batteries. Epsilor’s batteries are already in use by several NATO armies, including those of France, Italy, Canada, Germany, Poland and Singapore. Israel’s IDF is also using the batteries.
We wish you all Happy holidays.
