BAE placed an order with Saft to provide lithium-ion batteries. See the press release here. These batteries will be used by BAE in the FCS Manned Ground Vehicle (MGV). FCS is a system of systems that includes various vehicles and sensors. Saft has already provided batteries for the Non-Line of Site Cannon, the first FCS system that will be deployed. The batteries will be used in a hybrid battery power system for the vehicles. It will be interesting to see how this application of technology will work in the future.
