POWER ELECTRONICS: Behlman Electronics provides power supplies for fire control

Designers of the Advanced Gun System (AGS), the 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 at Behlman Electronics Inc. in Hauppauge, N.Y. Behlman won a contract to provide its DCS power supplies for fire-control systems on the DDG 1000 AGS. BAE Systems Land & Armaments Inc. in Arlington, Va., is the AGS prime contractor.

Behlman's DCS1000D, DCS1000T, DCS2000D, and DCS2000T commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) power supplies are designed and manufactured to withstand the rigors of shipboard, airborne, and mobile applications. The base-plate-cooled, switch-mode power supplies are designed to meet the input power requirements of MIL-STD-704 and MIL-STD-1399.

The AGS is designed to provide fire support to troops ashore. 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.
