Marshall Land Systems’ managing director Gary Moynehan was on hand at DSEI 2023 to explain how its individual next-gen deployable systems are helping solve challenges in the current geopolitical climate.

“Our systems have been deployed to support some of the more recent conflict territories and a number of our units are actively supporting our customers in the defence of Ukraine at this point in time,” he explained.

The evolution of the threat environment over the last 20 years means that mobility is now a critical factor when it comes to operations, and Marshall Land Systems has developed its deployable infrastructure to include a leg system to enable it to take itself on and off a vehicle.

“This allows you to free up a vehicle without actually having to expose a number of the operators to threat or harm, and then reposition the asset if you need to, if it comes under an external threat,” Moynehan said.

The modular systems can also be reconfigured from military use to suit humanitarian aid projects or to support remote communities.

Power management

According to Moynehan, “Power independence and redundancy are critical capabilities in the modern military and security environment.” The company launched its new power management system during DSEI, which includes solar power generation and microgrid technology to reduce the power burden of the unit and turn it into part of a distributed power architecture.

The power management system includes solar panels on the outside of the unit, as well as energy storage batteries which can hold the power from the solar panels or other power generation units. “This will actually change the market as a whole because it will shift something from being a consumer of energy and into an environment where it will contribute in a much broader perspective to some of the challenges our customers face in both the military environment but also in the civil sector as well,” Moynehan concluded.
