Lithium-Ion Battery Packs for Drones and Robotics
Commercial batteries with integrated Battery Management System (BMS)
Vanguard’s lithium-ion battery packs are ideal for a wide range of commercial and military UAV, UGV, USV and UUV platforms, delivering a versatile and efficient solution that can be adapted to your exact requirements.
The state-of-the-art fully integrated systems feature an internal Battery Management System (BMS) that works seamlessly with a CANbus-controlled charger and communications network. The modular nature of the battery packs allow them to be easily configured for a variety of capacities and voltages, and multiple batteries can be stacked to provide desired power levels.
Available in three basic configurations – 3.8 kWh, 5 kWh and 10 kWh* (*available from July 2021), Vanguard’s battery packs provide a wide range of benefits for drones and unmanned systems:
Rugged Durability & Extreme Testing
Vanguard batteries are housed in a durable pressure washer-rated enclosure and metal roll-cage for maximum protection in the most extreme environments. All units are thoroughly tested to withstand shock and vibration, extreme temperatures, dust, and immersion in water.

Enhanced Operational Lifetime
Our batteries are rated for up to 2000 cycles at full power and can still provide 80% capacity even after this. The maintenance-free units are fully serviceable, and thanks to the modular design, individual components and modules can be replaced instead of the entire battery.
Guaranteed Safety & Efficiency
Our proprietary Battery Management System, integrated into every unit, monitors voltage and temperature throughout the entire pack and ensures continuous safe and efficient operation.
