West Coast Solutions (WCS) is developing a modular 1 to 5 kW class expeditionary solar-lithium battery power system architected for the lightest practical weight and maximum operational robustness. Each individual module is itself a standalone system supporting up to 2 kW input and a minimum 1 kW output while containing 3.0 kWh of energy storage. The Ultra-Lightweight Expeditionary Power System (U-LEPS) provides a 50% reduction in the battery and support electronics weight relative to presently-fielded systems, with additional weight reduction at the system level enabled by the WCS “dual voltage bus” electronics and the elimination of battery cables. By designing out non-value-added complexity, U- LEPS is inherently robust and easy to use.
