ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 22 (UPI) -- API Technologies Corp. has received a $1.4 million order from the U.S. military for its new TPS75 tactical power supply system.

The mobile TPS75 will be used by the Department of Defense to support a variety of C4ISR, unmanned aerial vehicle and mission control missions, the company said.

C4ISR is the acronym for command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.

The company's power supply product made its debut last October at the Association of the United States Army Annual meeting and Exposition.

"As demand for reliable, mobile power grows, API Technologies' power systems offer outstanding functionality and a compelling value proposition to both defense and commercial customers alike," said Bel Lazar, president and chief executive officer of API Technologies. "We are pleased to see such a strong and positive customer response to this new product line."

TPS75 is a tactical, commercial off-the-shelf, 75 Amp, DC power supply suitable for ground and vehicular use. It can accept power from single or three-phase generators or shore/community power and converts AC to 28 Volts of DC power. The company also produces a 150 AMP model.
