Aura Systems has successful Viper test

EL SEGUNDO, Calif., May 18 (UPI) -- Aura Systems Inc. said a recent U.S. Army-sponsored test of its Viper system successfully demonstrated the power technology in real-world conditions.

California-based Aura Systems said its Viper mobile power solution was tested by the Applied Research Laboratory under sponsorship by the Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command.


According to a news release, the Applied Research Laboratory testing measured Aura's Viper system in comparison to air-cooled and water-cooled high-power alternators and found the Viper "generated at idle speed approximately twice the power generated by the other tested alternators."

"The army's controlled and sponsored test clearly demonstrated that our Viper mobile power solution performs as claimed under real-world severe conditions that our soldiers encounter in Iraq and Afghanistan and provides a superior solution for onboard vehicle power," Arthur Schwartz, Aura chief technology officer, said in a statement.
