Many governmental vehicles need onboard power over several days and weeks to supply onboard electronic devices used, e.g. instruments for capturing images or audio files, or for processing data to command control vehicles or recording devices.
Power demand: Between 15 W (single digital camera) and 150 W (multi-channel video processing and transmission including IR lighting) Autonomy demand: Ranging from 10 hours and full one-day shifts to up to 12 weeks for covert surveillance operations
Areas of Application: Border patrol, customs, command and control vehicles, covert surveillance, etc.
Long autonomy is needed to avoid having to start the engine for recharging the batteries, thus ensuring positive mission results of undercover operations, as well as flexibility and safety for the operators of the equipment. The energy source has to fit in a standard passenger car, without producing signature.
