Elbit Systems – Kinetics

Elbit Systems – Kinetics offers a comprehensive array of on-board electronic systems specifically designed for heavy-duty military applications. The Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) boosts the power supply to new and upgraded main battle tanks (MBT) and armored fighting vehicles (AFV) without operating the main engine, and supplies additional power to the platform’s generation capabilities. The Life Support System (LSS) provides chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (NBC/CBRN) protection; Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC); as well as cooling for electronic equipment. The All-in-One solution is a unique combination of an APU with HVAC & NBC/CBRN protection capabilities.
Kinetics offers a comprehensive array of APUs specifically designed for heavy-duty military applications. Field-proven worldwide, these units offer significant operational benefits to modern fighting forces, even in extreme and harsh environmental conditions.
The APU has become increasingly important equipment in light of the rising demand for power for the vehicle’s routine operation and its on-board electrical systems. It can be used either independently or in Co-generation Mode, in parallel to the operation of the main engine. The APU generates significant cost savings through reduced wear and tear on the main engine, extended maintenance intervals and decreased fuel consumption.
The Kinetics Life Support System (LSS) is an integrated, comprehensive and fully-customizable solution for armored fighting vehicles (AFVs) providing: (1) chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (NBC/CBRN) protection; (2) Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC); and (3) cooling for electronic equipment. Each sub-system can be manufactured as an independent unit, or can be integrated into the overall LSS solution. The LSS also has the option of being powered by the platform’s engine or self-propelled when connected to an alternative power source.
The Kinetics NBC/CBRN protection system provides comprehensive NBC protection for AFVs as well as cabin ventilation during peacetime operations, contributing to superior crew safety and performance. The system offers three protection modes: (1) Overpressure Protection where the cabin is pressurized with filtered air; (2) Individual Protection where filtered (and optionally conditioned) air is provided to each of the crew’s facemasks / overalls; and (3) Hybrid Protection, which combines cabin overpressure and individual protection.
