POWER ELECTRONICS: Hamilton Sundstrand wins General Dynamics contract for Army Stryker modernization program

General Dynamics Land Systems executives have selected Hamilton Sundstrand, a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp., for the Stryker Modernization Generator Subsystem Engineering and Manufacturing Development verification and validation program. Hamilton Sundstrand's generator subsystem will deliver 125-kilowatt/600-volt DC output power to meet the current and future needs of U.S. Army Stryker armored troop transport and combat vehicles and the Stryker Brigade Combat Team.

The increased power generated is required to support future communication and control suites and enhanced mission packages that will enable increased interoperability across the future combat system network.
