Dynetics Gremlins Phase III Program Relies on Acumentrics Power Solutions for Mission Critical Power
For Immediate Release:
6/8/18 Walpole, MA: Acumentrics, Inc., a leader in military power solutions, announced today that they were selected by Dynetics as a preferred partner in power on Phase III of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Gremlins program. The Phase III objective is to demonstrate safe and reliable aerial launch and aerial recovery of multiple unmanned drone systems capable of employing and recovering diverse distributed payloads in volume quantities.
“We are excited to support Dynetics on the Gremlins program. A key element of our strategy is to allow Dynetics to focus on developing these high-level systems while relying on Acumentrics for the design and manufacture of the mission critical power systems that are targeted towards Tactical Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)”, Steve Corbesero, Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Acumentrics, said.
Acumentrics’ mission critical power system is used in the airborne control station that provides operational control and situational awareness of the airspace around the C-130 as recovery of Gremlin UAV’s are conducted.
Tim Keeter, Deputy Program Manager and Chief Engineer for Gremlins at Dynetics, said, “Rapid development of innovative and complex systems like Gremlins drives us to identify and use system components with the highest reputation for reliability and performance. We are proud to be working, once again, with Acumentrics on another one of our priority demonstration programs."
Since 1994 Acumentrics, Inc., has been a trusted market leader in RUPS™ (Rugged AC and DC Uninterruptible Power Supplies) for harsh and combat environments, as well as heavy-duty industrial applications. RUPS™ provide clean power and battery backup when reliability is critical. The modern military increasingly relies on computers and other sophisticated electronic equipment to accomplish their missions. RUPS™ keep this mission critical equipment online in harsh environments by addressing inevitable electrical variances, surges, spikes, sags, and interruptions. As a result, Acumentrics is a preferred supplier of US-made power electronics to many of the world’s largest prime defense contractors.
Acumentrics FAA Compliant UPS Power System Selected by Mercury Systems to Support Briefcase Size Rugged Mini Server
Acumentrics, Inc. announced that the Company's Carry On Power Case™ was selected by Mercury Systems, Inc as a key component for their RESmini XR6 rugged mini server. Featuring the latest Intel® Xeon® Scalable (Skylake) Processors and bundled with Acumentrics' new FAA-compliant power case, the RESmini can operate independently for two hours without a power source.
“We’ve been listening carefully to our customers who’ve consistently expressed the need for IT infrastructure more suitable for expeditionary operations”, stated Michael Schneider, Vice President of Mercury’s Trusted Mission Solutions group (formerly Themis Computer). “The RESmini XR6 is a very small, environmentally resilient, enterprise class server which is ideally suited for expeditionary operational profiles. When combined with the FAA-compliant Carry-On Power Case™, operators can travel with the RESmini in a commercial aircraft’s overhead bin and operate it in virtually any power environment.”
RESmini XR6 Highlights
- A Data Center in a Briefcase
- Designed to be on the Move
- Operation in the Most Stringent Environments
For applications that require autonomous operation, the RESmini can be fully integrated within a FAA Carry-On Compliant UPS Power Case. Designed by Acumentrics, the System delivers versatile power in a rugged, lightweight, and portable case.
“The RESmini Carry-On Power Case System is designed to be completely autonomous and flexible.” said Steve Corbesero, Senior VP for sales and marketing at Acumentrics. “The system automatically adjusts to the AC power on hand and will even run on a 12/28 volt DC power source commonly found on an aircraft, military vehicle, or light commercial vehicle.”
RESmini Power Case Features:
- Designed for the field: The entire RESmini power case system weighs 47lbs and features a 4”x11”x14” internal electronic bay that can power the RESmini along with other small electronics. The Military standard waterproof casing is molded out of high-strength polypropylene copolymer resin that resists UV, solvent, corrosion, fungus, and impact damage. A patented trigger release latch system and an automatic ambient pressure equalization valve along with a lockable lid that enhances security on the field.
- Dense embedded power: The power case provides over 100 minutes of autonomous run-time for typical operations and can be powered by both AC (100-240V, 47-400Hz) and DC (10-30V) power. This ensures operation across a multitude of global voltages and frequencies as well as inside a vehicle. The case can also be powered by standard military batteries. Optional hot swappable battery packs that increase run time are available.
- Built in Safety: The system is designed to meet UN-DOT 38.3 for FAA compliance. A fail safe battery disconnect prevents battery drainage and ensures safety during transport. Wheels, retractable handles, and cushioned grips assure smooth transport for mission-critical operations on the move.

Powering that gear is another acute challenge for the Marine Corps and its expeditionary missions. The average Marine’s kit is already weighed down with heavy battery packs, and the Corps is continuing a search for the perfect battery or mobile power source.
Rechargeable, disposable and solar-powered batteries, as well as other experimental technologies have all . But so far there’s no silver bullet.
“They are all trying to find the right technology that can provide very high energy for a long period of time but it also has to be lightweight,” said Yves Destenaves, a product manager with Acumentrics, a Massachusetts-based company that specializes in battery and power systems.
Acumentrics sells a 9-lb. battery system that is sewn into a standard Marine’s backpack with USB ports and traditional electrical-plug inputs accessible from the pack’s exterior and within reach for the warfighter.
