SAN DIEGO -- General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems (GA-EMS) announced today that it has been awarded a contract from the U.S. Navy through the Defense Ordnance Technology Consortium (DOTC) to develop advanced, high energy density capacitors for use in High Power Microwave (HPM) systems. GA-EMS is applying advanced technologies to create high energy density capacitors that will enable the deployment of HPM systems on smaller and more tactically relevant Navy platforms.

"This award is an exciting opportunity for us to capitalize on the advances we’ve made in engineering and manufacturing compact, high energy capacitors for railgun pulsed power applications, and apply those innovations to create capacitors for emerging HPM weapon systems," stated Nick Bucci, vice president of Missile Defense and Space Systems at GA-EMS. "Our new materials and manufacturing technologies and techniques will help shape future capacitor capabilities to meet the necessary power output and reduced package size required for next generation platforms."

GA-EMS is leading the research, development and demonstration of high energy density capacitor technologies that enable more powerful, compact system designs for a broad range of next generation land and sea-based platforms and directed energy applications. GA-EMS has successfully demonstrated pulsed power capacitors that offer record-breaking energy content of more than 415 kJ in a single capacitor, breaking previous records by more than 20%.
