June 21, 2017: IDEs (INTRACOM Defense Electronics) latest product technology was put to test by the Estonian Defence Forces (EDF) during the 15th Spring Storm exercise.
IDEs pioneering tactical mobile Hybrid Power Station was tested during the exercise, primarily focusing in its performance for significantly reduced fuel consumption and maintenance requirements and also for its unique operational capability to provide power under True Silent Watch, during covert operations.
The Hybrid Electrical Power System (HEPS) product family is the result of IDEs substantial research and development activity in the field, offering power supply solutions for stationary and mobile applications, as well as customized integrated solutions for military vehicles. HEPS optimise power availability at the minimum running cost, utilising intelligent power management and storage techniques, reducing dramatically downtimes and ensuring that power can be available on demand for hours without thermal or aural trace.
In the Estonian exercise 15th Spring Storm, which took place between 8 and 25 May 2017, participated 9,000 military personnel of the EDF, from NATO member-countries as well from other countries such as Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, Ukraine, UK and USA as well as air forces from Belgium, Poland, Spain and USA.
