IS4S is heavily involved in the development of electronics for command and control purposes for decontamination, obscuration, ground power, and unmanned systems. IS4S specializes in electronics and control systems for gas turbine power generation and propulsion systems at the miniature to small scale. Compared to traditional generator sets, turboalternators offer advantages in size, weight, reliability and attenuated noise level. In support of these systems, IS4S has either developed or is currently developing the following power electronics for several military customers:
IS4S uses a number of tools for development of power electronics, controls development and packaging. These are listed here:
High-Energy Ignition Exciter with High-Tension Spark Output
IS4S developed the Ignition Exciter Module using capacitive-discharge technology to output a high-energy spark for ignition of a high-speed turboalternator. Read more Here.
