Light Tactical Vehicles

Light Tactical Vehicle Power 

American Power Systems, Inc. develops and provides special power systems for today's joint light tactical vehicles -- also referred to as JLTVs or LTVs -- built for maximum survivability and heavy payloads.

We partner with government and defense entities and vehicle OEMs such as Polaris Defense to provide the onboard current end-users need to get the job done and stay safe.

Our capabilities span design and engineering to the manufacturing of DC power systems, which enables our team to execute quickly: Often we can move from concept to first article within 90 days. 

APS's work includes split power systems and secondary power systems, which provide significant current at vehicle idle, for the DAGOR platform for US Special Operations Command.

+ ALTERNATORS for light tactical vehicles and other defense platforms

APS is a trusted advisor to governments and OEMs for selecting and delivering the appropriate high output alternator or alternators to fulfill critical power requirements for special applications.

More general information about our high output alternators is available here.

We recommend beginning with a consultation with one of our technologically capable international program managers.


For special operations and other defense applications, APS designs bracketry that supports our high output alternators with no or minimum disruption to the manufacturer's engine schematic. Our design team has mastered the art of making an almost unthinkable amount of power fit into the most unlikely spaces.

We design and manufacture dual alternator bracket kits that:

  • Minimize OEM component disruption
  • Use manufacturer mounting points
  • Include complete instructions and supplies for installation in the field
