Military, truck, and rail solutions
Power management for military
BAE Systems provides reliable and efficient power electronic products and solutions including system integration, software development and management for both commercial and military applications. Designed and built to meet military specifications our proven components and subsystems provide innovative solutions to advance vehicle mobility, efficiency, and capabilities through innovative:
- Power distribution
- Power controls
- Power management
- Vehicle diagnostics
- Overall vehicle health management
Our Power Management Systems optimize mechanical and electrical power in ground vehicles to give military networks customized, high-energy capabilities for use in C4ISR capabilities, autonomous systems, active protection systems (APS), directed energy weapons (DEW), "stealth" electric propulsion drivetrains, and more.
Parallel hybrid propulsion system
We deliver propulsion and power management performance with innovative electrification products and solutions that advance vehicle mobility, efficiency, and capability. Our parallel hybrid propulsion system is ideal for optimizing performance, control, and efficiency in coach buses and Class 7 & 8 trucks for trash collection, construction, and local deliveries. All to achieve results that matter – lower fuel consumption and costs, reduced emissions, and quieter operations.
Our Parallel systems use both simplified and proven components and controls. The system is based on a single electric machine integrated with the engine and the transmission and can be installed with minimal impact to the vehicle. Propulsion is enhanced through an optimized blending of power from a conventional power source and from the electrical power source. Our hybrid electric truck system’s energy management and control capabilities ensure all energy flow — such as propulsion and braking energy recuperation — occurs in the most efficient fashion, resulting in lower fuel consumption.
Hybrid power management solutions for rail
We offer power management capabilities and product solutions for the rail market. Our products provide hybrid power management for more than 8,000 hybrid locomotives in the U.S. alone.
Our experience in power management has been helping urban transport with solutions for better fuel savings and decreased emissions for more than 20 years. Our hybrid train propulsion system incorporates efficient energy storage for optimal operation of the engine at constant speeds and load but also allows brake energy recovery for increased savings.

Premier systems integration & flexible service
We provides our customers with the most comprehensive power and propulsion systems integration and support in the industry. While others often just ship parts out to be installed, we send our OEM partners a certified Application Engineer with our cutting edge power systems to assure a smooth integration from day one, including on-site technical advice and thorough training. Then we back that work with our Flexible Service Plan – customized to fit the customer's business model – including a coordinated technology management program to eliminate obsolescence.
