The word

Saft Eurosatory 2010 The batteries are specifically designed to start and even fully power (on "silent watch" all-electric mode) armored vehicles currently in development. Saft has other energy storage solutions for military and civilian use as well, all based on lithium-ion super-phosphate and asymmetrical nickel capacitor technologies.

The new Eurosatory 2010 concept offers a high-performance alternative to lead-acid for heavier military vehicles. It's based on a 28V system that allows a large reserve of power to e stored for reliable engine starting and on-board electrical system use without idling.

And so ...

Saft's technology would reduce on-board weight and volumetric footprint for the battery storage.
