AXSOL GmbH (hereinafter AXSOL) and RUAG AG (hereinafter RUAG) combine their competencies to expand RUAG’s technical offering with modern energy storage systems from AXSOL.

A reliable energy infrastructure is one of the most important basic requirements for military operations of any kind. Electricity must always be available reliably, flexibly, at low cost and preferably with low noise and emissions. Battery storage solutions are a perfect solution for these requirements, as they can be sustainably charged via renewable means and then provide the energy safely.

The use of batteries brings several advantages. In addition to the high flexibility due to different operating modes, these include above all the rapid availability of electrical energy and the high level of safety in logistics and application. In addition, battery storage systems produce fewer emissions because no fuel is consumed, making CO2-neutral operation possible.

The cooperation between the two companies offers new potential for the integration of modern battery storage systems in military technology. AXSOL and RUAG have therefore decided to pursue joint paths in this area.

For RUAG – as a technology partner of the Swiss Armed Forces and international customers, safety comes first. Life cycle management for air & ground systems as well as for communication and reconnaissance systems plays a central role in this. AXSOL has many years of experience in the design and implementation of mobile and stationary energy storage systems. To this end, the company internally bundles its knowledge of electrical engineering, IT/software and chemistry and further deepens this know-how through close cooperation with research institutes.

The focus of the cooperation is on the sensible combination of the products of both companies in order to equip military units with state-of-the-art technology and a reliable energy supply. Specifically, this involves AXSOL’s ARVEY B2, which is to act as a self-sufficient power supply unit for RUAG’s military radio system (MIFAP system).
