Advanced Gun System makers for Navy's future Zumwalt-class destroyer choose power supplies from Behlman Electronics

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., 10 June 2012. Designers of the Advanced Gun System (AGS), the a 155-millimeter main gun on the future U.S. Navy Zumwalt-class (DDG 1000), needed power supplies to energize the AGS fire-control systems. They found their solution from Behlman Electronics Inc. in Hauppauge, N.Y.

Behlman has been awarded a follow-on contract to provide Behlman DCS power supplies for the fire control systems on the DDG 1000 AGS. Behlman's model DCS1000D, DCS1000T, DCS2000D and DCS2000T are commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) power supplies that are designed and manufactured to withstand the rigors of shipboard, airborne, and mobile applications (story continues below).

These base-plate-cooled, switch-mode power supplies are designed to meet the input power requirements of MIL-STD-704 and MIL-STD-1399. BAE Systems Land & Armaments Inc. in Arlington, Va., is the AGS prime contractor.

The AGS is designed to provide fire support to troops ashore in the same way that battleships provided artillery support during World War II. The weapon can shoots its long-range with an average rate of fire of 10 rounds per minute using a water cooled barrel.

The AGS is to be mounted in a turret designed for the Zumwalt-class destroyer. The turret itself is designed to be stealthy, allowing for the entire length of the barrel to be enclosed within the turret housing when not firing. The AGS has a range as far as 63 nautical miles. Behlman DCS power supplies are an integral part of some of their fire control systems.

With input transient protection per Mil-STD-1399-1; 86 to 265 volts AC at 47 to 440 Hz, and outputs from 5 to 56 volts DC, there are power supplies in the Behlman DCS series that meet the needs of military and industrial applications.
