Smart Power Management

With an ever-broader array of onboard electronics and control systems, today’s vehicles need more power, delivered more efficiently.

We design and manufacture single board power supplies for standard power requirements, as well as advanced power management and distribution solutions for the most demanding military applications.

Our power distribution and control systems are designed to provide clean, reliable, intelligent, and efficient power for sensor, communications, and computing systems, as well as complex vehicle control and chassis systems. 

Why choose our Smart Power Management Solutions?

  • They will get you further. Our power distribution solutions enable higher in-field operating efficiencies than can be achieved by most other electronic systems.
  • They are leading edge. General Dynamics continues to innovate with new technologies, including solid state circuit breakers, smart switching, and electronics control, and diagnostic systems.
  •  They are tried and true. Our solutions are engineered based on decades of experience delivering rugged power management solutions to military organisations worldwide.

The Power Distribution Unit – Small Form Factor ® (PDU-SFF) is a right sized power management solution that ensures consistent and clean power distribution. Designed and qualified to meet exacting military specifications for harsh environments. Fitted with an optional TEMPEST filter, PDF-SFF powers sensitive communications systems and filtering is required to prevent the transfer of electronic information back onto the platform power grid.



  • Qualified to Military Standard 1275B (MIL-STD-127B) for power.
  • Rated distributions is (up to) fifty amperes (50A) of twenty eight volts of direct current (28 VDC).
  • Offers over current protection, surge suppression, and reverse polarity protection (disables power if battery connection are reversed).
  • Small form factor lowers footprint, saving valuable platform space.
  • Faceplate mounts five general purpose power outlets & indicator displaying unit status.
  • PDU-SFF can be scaled to any role or power needs of fitted systems. Daisy chaining allows expansion for complex platforms and applications.
