BAE Systems to Bring Next-Generation Electric Drive System to Heavy-Duty Industrial Vehicle Market


Reading time ( words)

BAE Systems, a leader in electric propulsion, will bring its next-generation power and propulsion technology to the heavy-duty industrial vehicle market. The company’s electric drive system provides a revolutionary design which will help industrial vehicle original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) get their electric vehicles (EVs) to market faster and at a lower installed cost.

BAE Systems has over 15,000 power and propulsion systems in electrified commercial vehicles across the globe, and those systems have logged four billion on-road miles.

“We are providing an all-inclusive solution to bring the industrial vehicle market one step closer to a zero emission future,” said Steve Trichka, vice president and general manager of Power and Propulsion Solutions at BAE Systems. “Our next-generation components are the Swiss Army Knife of power electronics, delivering multifunctional capabilities in a compact and flexible design. This flexibility makes it easier for OEMs to cover multiple platforms, including traditional diesel and purpose built EVs.”

BAE Systems’ next-generation system for the heavy-duty industrial vehicle market builds on the company’s more than 25 years of experience in low and zero emission EV solutions for the transit bus and marine industries. The system uses fewer components and increases electrical efficiency. Its Modular Accessory Power System (MAPS) and Modular Power Control System (MPCS) also allow for scalable, customized solutions to provide the core power for a range of applications, from school buses and mining vehicles to sanitation and yard trucks. 

Using a modular design, BAE Systems’ power electronics technology will provide both power and propulsion for battery electric, fuel cell, and electric-hybrid vehicles. In addition to MAPS and MPCS, the next-generation system is available with central motor, electric axle, battery and fuel cell solutions.

BAE Systems has a deep understanding of systems engineering, a revolutionary design for propulsion and accessory power, proven integration expertise, and aftermarket support to give manufacturers a reliable solution and faster path to market, at a lower installation cost.

BAE Systems develops and services its electric propulsion technology at its facilities in Endicott, N.Y., and Rochester, U.K.

Designing Through Supply Chain Pain

09/13/2022 | Chris Young, Young Engineering Services
Engineers are accustomed to the demanding challenges of designing for miniaturization, cost reduction, cross platform compatibility, and harsh environments. What has proven to be the most painful experience of my career (and for many of my colleagues) is the sheer lack of components from which to build our designs. Development cycles—commercial, industrial, medical, avionics—have been severely impacted, from large enterprise corporations to small design/integration companies. Awareness of the situation is the first step to understanding the underlying problems faced by today’s design engineers industry wide. Here are a few of the situations I have faced in the last year alone.

Excerpt Chapter 5: 'The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to... Thermal Management with Insulated Metal Substrates, Vol. 2'
