About the Products

The 2kW and 3kW EAPUs were developed as a response to a requirement to enhance the M1A1 Abrams Main Battle Tank effectiveness. Each EAPU is specifically designed to provide auxiliary electrical power during periods of silent watch and to provide main battery charging. Use of the EAPUs allows for the minimization of main engine operating time as well as the provision of a backup source of power to the main batteries.

The TT-40 gas turbine engine and electronic control unit (ECU) is an integral part of the US Army’s M56 and XM58 Smoke Generator System program. The M56 smoke generator system provides coverage for large areas, providing both visual and infrared wavelength obstruction. As part of the smoke generator system, the TT-40 engine provides power with controlled bleed air and controlled exhaust temperature to disseminate obscurants.
