Jenoptik‘s Defense & Civil Systems division will supply components for the PATRIOT missile defence system via several partial orders (worth €11 million), which the division received between June and August 2016, providing the power supply, converter, aluminium chassis, and spare part packages for the PATRIOT Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) system. The power generators will supply the radar and the carrier system of the missile defence system with electrical power. The components will be produced in Altenstadt, Germany.
"The follow-up orders acknowledge the work we have done for the PATRIOT system, for which we have been long-term supplier and partner," Michael Mertin, Jenoptik President & CEO, told MT. Jenoptik is currently testing a hybrid power supply system which allows for reductions in previous fuel consumption of up to 50 percent.
