Analytic Systems has received their first contract for their high performance customized DC/AC Inverters (model IPS1500MS-20-110TC) that will power equipment within Textron Canada’s Tactical
Armoured Patrol Vehicle (TAPV). Textron Canada contracted Analytic Systems to provide our inverters due to their high reliability and rugged designs.

Textron Systems Canada was recently by the Canadian government for the Canadian Forces Tactical Armoured Patrol Vehicle (TAPV) program. The contract provides that the Textron TAPV Team, led by Textron Systems Canada, together with Textron Marine & Land Systems and Rheinmetall Canada, will manufacture 500 vehicles, with an option for up to 100 more.

Ottawa-based Textron Systems Canada, as prime contractor, will provide overall TAPV program and configuration management, act as design authority for change management, coordinate vehicle integration activities by Canadian subcontractors, manage the In-Service Support contract, and implement the Industrial and Regional Benefits program.

“The Textron TAPV will deliver an unmatched blend of survivability, crew protection, power, mobility and payload versatility,” explained Neil Rutter, general manager of Textron Systems Canada. “Our program team is ready to move forward to produce this modern and upgradable 4 by 4 armoured vehicle, which will serve the Canadian Army extremely well for the next 25 years.”
