The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) signed a contract with SAFT for batteries. See the press release here. While SAFT is a French company the batteries will be made in NC at their plant. The contract is for up to 5 years and could be worth $170 M. With the amount of electronics proliferating on the battlefield, battery technology is very important as the US and other countries strive for lighter batteries that provide more power.
