Lincad wins contract to supply batteries and chargers for ECM system

British battery manufacturer, Lincad, has secured contracts with defence contractor, Thales.

The deal will see the company supply additional batteries and chargers for the Storm-H, an ultra-compact, lightweight Electronic Countermeasures (ECM) system designed to protect individuals against Radio Controlled Improvised Explosive Devices (RCIED).

In addition to protecting specialist military personnel such as observers, mentors, dog handlers and engineers who operate in small, detached teams, Storm-H can also be used for domestic emergencies that require a response from combined civilian and military services. Providing first responders with a lightweight, unobtrusive, ‘turn on and forget’ capability that operates in conjunction with other systems, Storm-H can also be easily installed on unmanned search vehicles.

Lincad has been developing batteries and chargers for the UK MOD and defence primes since 1986 with the deal seeing the company continue their relationship with Thales.

Peter Slade, Lincad’s Joint Managing Director, said: “Thales is a long-standing Lincad client and we’re delighted that they are continuing to rely on us for the specialist batteries and chargers that the innovative Storm-H requires. This new order is further evidence of our ability to meet the most exacting military power management demands.”
