General Atomics to Develop Capacitors for DoD Non-Lethal Vehicle Stopper Platform - top government contractors - best government contracting eventA business unit of General Atomics has been selected by the Defense Department Ordnance Technology Consortium to produce high-energy density capacitors for a non-lethal platform designed to stop and disable vehicles as part of force protection and checkpoint operations.

General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems will supply the capacitors to DoD’s Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Directorate for integration into the Pre-Emplaced Electric Vehicle Stopper system, the company said Wednesday.

“The PEVS system has the potential to support multiple missions and be mobile as operations change, making a compact footprint a critical requirement,” said Nick Bucci, vice president for missile defense and space systems at GA-EMS.

Buccci added the company looks to use advanced manufacturing techniques to build capacitors that will offer pulsed power output in compact packaging.

PEVS is designed to function as a non-intrusive device for disabling vehicle electrical components through short, intense electrical pulse upon vehicle approach of contacts.
