Power Systems Upgrade
Ferranti Technologies is able to design, qualify, manufacture and supply for Armoured Fighting Vehicles system for power conversion and distribution, power and hydraulic system control, and engine and transmission management.
As an example, Ferranti Technologies was commissioned, to carry out the redesign, qualification and manufacture of the Engine & Transmission Management System for a UK Armoured Fighting Vehicle.
This programme saw the upgrade of 900 vehicles and was concluded with all deliverables and milestones achieved on schedule.
The programme was designed to replace obsolete and legislatively non compliant systems and improve reliability and performance whilst significantly reducing whole life costs.
During the upgrade, Ferranti Technologies helped to ensure that the newly designed units were not only compatible with existing systems but that they also incorporated the latest technology.
The improvements to this platform gave the AFV 430 Bulldog the ability to undertake operational roles that had previously been limited to much more modern vehicles such as the Warrior Infantry Fighting Vehicle.
