Patriot. Powered by VINCORION
We have been supplying reliable power systems for the world’s most popular air defense system for decades and, together with the US Army, are developing a hybrid solution for the next generation of the Patriot that uses supercaps for power storage. VINCORION has received the Raytheon Supplier Excellence Award multiple times for its outstanding working relationship.
The Patriot System
Radar, Launcher, and Communication System
The Patriot system can only perform its life-saving role when the three components of radar, launcher, and communication system work together seamlessly. Within the framework of the close collaboration between Raytheon, the nations that use the system, and VINCORION, we guarantee the superior performance of all three subsystems by providing a customized power supply. We are the first choice for Patriot users around the globe – with proven reliability and extensive customer support.
Security and military superiority depend on reliable radar operations that are self-sufficient at all times. Each radar system has individual load requirements.
VINCORION has been supplying various air and ground radar systems for decades, e.g., all of the radar systems used in the Patriot air defense system worldwide.
Due to the growing number of countries that now rely on the Patriot system, the partnership between VINCORION and Patriot manufacturer Raytheon is extremely productive, and VINCORION has received the Raytheon Supplier Excellence Award multiple times.
We also supply the power system for the European COBRA counter-battery radar system. In addition to other projects such as MEADS/TLVS or the RAT-31 air surveillance radar, we are also able to meet the special load requirements of your radar system with our customized power solutions.
Like many military systems, the Patriot launcher system requires maximum power for only a fraction of the operating time. Nevertheless, gensets are designed for this maximum load. This leads to inefficient idle times with high fuel consumption, engine and exhaust system wear and tear, and high maintenance requirements. VINCORION’s hybrid genset for the Patriot is an innovative solution to this challenge.
The variable-speed diesel genset is designed for the typical and actual load profile and is backed up at peak loads by a power storage unit made of supercaps. The genset meets all MIL and system requirements and can be used as a plug-and-play solution in all Patriot systems worldwide, as a successful trial with the US Army over several months demonstrated.
Radar systems are central components of military reconnaissance, surveillance, and defense. Security and military superiority depend on their reliable and autonomous operation at all times. VINCORION has been supplying various radar systems for the reconnaissance of movements in the air and on the ground for decades.
