Mainstream is concluding a successful Phase I in which a functional MILSTAR battery prototype was completed. This accomplishment demonstrates our capability to manufacture this complex item – a critical milestone in becoming a future supplier of this NSN. Several additional prototypes will be completed by the conclusion of the Phase I and tested by the MILSATCOM Logistics & Operations Support Division test director at Peterson AFB. In Phase II, Mainstream will transition the battery pack from engineering to production through our internal product development process. Production tooling will be designed and a detailed manufacturing plan will be developed. Formal quality control, inspection methods, test protocols, and production traveler documents will be established. With the procedures in place, we will demonstrate a low-rate production run that will provide information for refining cost and lead time models. The overall goal of Phase II is to transition the battery to our procurement and production teams in preparation of bidding on future requests for quotation for NSN 6140-01-319-9600 solicited by DLA.
