TurnOnGreen segment Digital Power Corporation (DPC) has received a $344,000 contract from an “industry-leading” defense company to produce distribution systems for Multiple Launch Rocket Systems (MLRS).
Under the contract, DPC will work with the partner to fabricate and assemble multiple improved distribution box 3s or IEDB3s.
The resulting boxes will be modeled for the MLRS to sustain its operability and meet different tactical requirements on the battlefield.
Work on the project will start later this month. The systems’ production and certification will take place at TurnOnGreen’s facility in Milpitas, California.
“Securing a contract from one of the world’s largest defense firms is a testament to DPC’s expertise in developing and manufacturing technologically advanced high-grade power supply systems capable of powering a variety of portable and stationary devices that can operate reliably in mission-critical environments,” TurnOnGreen and DPC CEO Amos Kohn stated.
“As a certified small business and entity compliant with International Traffic in Arms Regulations, DPC has operations, systems, and facilities designed to produce the state-of-the-art products needed to power the most sophisticated defense and aerospace technologies used by the US and other international defense forces.”
Multiple Launch Rocket Systems
The MLRS is a land-based artillery system integrated with different launchers for effective enemy neutralization.
The platform can deploy warheads such as guided rockets, Ground Launched Small Diameter Bombs, and Army Tactical Missile Systems or ATACMS, in all weather conditions.
Current MLRS iterations fire missiles at targets between 200 meters (656 feet) and more than 70 kilometers (43 miles) away.
The system is deployable to any international point via cargo planes such as the C-5 Galaxy military transport aircraft and C-17 Globemaster III strategic transport aircraft.
Power Supply for US, NATO Communications
In July, DPC signed a $1-million contract to manufacture and supply small, ruggedized tactical power solutions for US and NATO satellite-based tactical communications.
The portable systems, incorporating military-standard uninterruptible power switching and charging equipment, will be used by personnel from US Homeland Security, first responders, and NATO teams once delivered.
