Intracom Defense (IDE) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Krauss Maffei Wegmann (KMW) to cooperate on the deployment of a hybrid auxiliary power solution for Leopard 2 main battle tank (MBT) variants, based on IDE’s Hybrid Genaircon system and KMW’s OEM platform integration expertise. Genaircon is an integrated Hybrid Power Supply and Management system for vehicles.
The agreement coincides with the on-going activities of IDE – in cooperation with the Hellenic Ministry of Defence – on the integration of Genaircon into the Greek Leopard 2A4. This integration will enhance the MBT’s auxiliary power resilience, mission sustainment, survivability through True Silent Watch capability and lead to lifecycle cost savings. Work will be completed within the first half of 2020.
