Saft is designing high-power cells for the vehicle’s hybrid electric drive train system, with a demonstration solution already completed.
The GCV is part of a range of prototypes, which Saft has supplied energy storage solutions for.
This new funding is in addition to a contract awarded originally in 2010.
Tom Alcide, general manager of Saft’s specialty battery group, said, ‘Saft is proud to continue working with BAE Systems and its partners on the GCV programme.
‘This project is a testament to BAE Systems’ long-standing support of Saft and our expertise in designing and building state-of-the-art batteries that meet the demands of modern, sophisticated military vehicles.’
