Jadoo Power Systems Inc. in Folsom, Calif., has delivered its IFS24 power system to the U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) at Mac Dill Air Force Base, Fla., fulfilling part of a contract signed in September 2004.
SOCOM awarded the contract to Jadoo, maker of portable fuel cell power systems, with the intention of moving soldier power off older legacy batteries. The IFS24 solution replaces the BA-5590 batteries offering the same amount of energy in a package that is roughly 30 percent lighter in weight.
Its integrated hybrid power-management module ensures optimal and expanded performance capabilities. The new portable energy solution also employs the company’s N-Stor digital interface, rapid refill system option, and industry-standard safety valve design.
“The Jadoo IFS24 exceeded our expectations,” says Mitch Wathen, SOCOM’s Naval Air Systems Command representative. “The future roadmap for this technology is amazing in the areas of continued carry weight reduction and power delivery-something critical to saving the lives of our soldiers.”
