Epsilor offers a range of batteries especially designed for Tactical and MALE aerial vehicles. Used for starter, back-up and auxiliary systems applications, Epsilor UAS batteries offer the optimal combination of energy, power, battery management in aerial and cold weather conditions, safety and reliability, aerospace certifications and competitive pricing.
Following are some of Epsilor high altitude UAS battery features:
- Verity of cell chemistry to fit mission profile: Epsilor offers aerial batteries for energy oriented missions, such as back-up, deicing, auxiliary system power etc., and power oriented missions, such as mid-air starter, high power payload operation etc. The offered battery will be comprised of cells that keep the best size and weight ratio for the required mission.
- Packaging materials and structures: Epsilor’s airborne batteries are packed in metal, plastic and composite cases, according to mission profile and certification requirements. Epsilor can optimize weight, strength, volume, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and price, by using different pack materials and manufacturing methods.
- Operation in cold temperatures: most Tactical and MALE UAS operate in high altitudes of up to 30,000 ft, where external temperatures reach -55°C. In order to support battery operation in this altitude, Epsilor’s batteries usually include an internal smart heater that maintains battery temperature at its optimal temperature range.
- Aviation and aerospace certifications: in recent years as part of their integration into civil airspace, UAS and their components are required to pass strict aviation standards and certifications. These include: AS-9100D, MIL-STD-704 aerial electricity standard, MIL-STD-461 electromagnetic compatibility, DO-311 certificate for airborne Li-Ion batteries, as well as other software and hardware certifications. Epsilor offers a full suite of development, testing and certifications, according to international aviation directives.
