SALT LAKE CITY, 1 Dec. 2007. Aircraft designers at the Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Co. in Fort Worth, Texas, needed batteries for the F-22 Raptor stealth jet fighter. They found their solution from Parvus Corp. in Salt Lake City.

Parvus is building 185 smart battery units that provide redundant power to encryption/decryption equipment aboard the F-22, under terms of a $3.56 million Lockheed Martin contract.

This agreement follows a $1.6 million prototype development contract last year. The final design has performed without failures or maintenance during flight tests.

"The new CNI battery greatly improves mission readiness for the F-22, delivering more than a month of operation without a recharge," says Parvus Director of Aerospace and Defense Programs Mike Simpson.

Earlier this month, Parvus received orders for an inline lightning filter (ILF) and input voltage limiter (IVL) for the F-22. For more information contact Parvus online at www.parvus.com.
