US-based defense contractor Leonardo DRS announced earlier this month that it will introduce its next-generation power conversion technology, providing US Navy ships a more “available and reliable electrical power.”
With this, the company seeks to boost the service’s mission-critical system capacity, especially in today’s ever-evolving security environment.
As the company phrases it, the new Leonardo DRS 6KVA Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) denotes “the next step in providing conditioned backup power to command, control, and communication systems where a clean, reliable power supply is mission critical.”
The new system carries over the tried-and-true qualities of prior Leonardo DRS technology, emphasizing lightweight, compact, and reliable backup power capable of meeting the current “demanding electrical requirements” of most Navy ships today. Compared to other systems, the Leonardo DRS 6KVA also has a “more robust power,” thus posing it as a more capable and dependable technology.
