“A multibillion-dollar missile defense system owned by the United Arab Emirates and developed by the U.S. military intercepted a ballistic missile on Monday during a deadly attack by Houthi militants in Abu Dhabi, marking the system’s first known use in a military operation.”
The THAAD system uses Nova’s Jupiter-Series UPS system in the radar, and uses our Galaxy-Series UPS in the fire control that was used to actually fire the missile that shot down the enemy’s midrange ballistic missile. We are proud to provide the rugged power conversion hardware that the US Military and US-friendly militaries worldwide rely upon for reliable power when you need it most!
