SPD Technologies Awarded Canadian Navy Contract

—Brochure Available SPD Technologies has been awarded a $670,000 contract to produce a special-design battery monitoring system for Canada's Department of National Defense.

In addition to the design and manufacturing effort, the contract includes necessary technical data, spare parts, and support engineering services.

SPD's new BMS-100 all-cell battery battery monitoring system will be installed in the Canadian Navy's Oberon- class diesel submarines.

It features 448 probes and a specially designed computer to receive and display data on the operating status of all battery cells on the submarine.

The system, which is scheduled for delivery to the Canadian Navy in March 1989, will be produced at SPD's manufacturing plant in Philadelphia.

The BMS-100 is an advanced model of SPD's NS9055 battery monitoring system, which has been proven in submarine applications over the past three years. It is designed in modules for flexibility to adapt to specific battery system requirements.

According to the manufacturer, the BMS-100 system offers a combination of functional and cost efficiency never before available in MIL-SPEC battery monitoring systems for submarines, where precise measurements of power status is critical.

Key aspects of the advanced system are a new digital battery cell probe with additional hardware and associated proprietary software packages which provide a new standard in data acquisition, prediction, reliability and ease of operation.
