Power and data integrated
MORE POWER, LESS WEIGHT
Managing centralised power, the Cortex uses energy dense power sources to power soldier worn devices. With its slimline design and light weight, the Cortex automatically converts power to any connected soldier worn device, solving the need for more power and less weight.
HOT-SWAP DEVICES AND POWER
The Cortex ensures BANTAM is adaptable to soldiers' needs at a moment’s notice. The ability to hot-swap; rapidly connecting and disconnecting devices, and to sacrifice power-draining devices using the Command, makes the Cortex an advanced solution, providing intuitive operability for soldiers.
NETWORK MORE THAN 10 DEVICES
The user is able to power more than 10 devices from the Cortex, using BANTAM Links to create a network tailored to integrate with the soldier. Lin Bus compatible, this network is data enabled allowing communications between devices and the Command, providing advanced power management.
POWERING MODERN CAPABILITY
The Cortex enables alternative power sources available to power equipment. Including solar, vehicle and scavenged power and fuel cells, BANTAM enables a comprehensive range of power sources to be connected. With the power source of your choice, BANTAM caters to the power demands of the modern, technologically equipped soldier.
SIMPLIFIED POWER MANAGEMENT
The Cortex eases cognitive and physical burdens by reducing the number of batteries carried and replaced during a mission. Saving time and simplifying battle procedure.
AUTOMATIC POWER CONVERSION
Power is automatically converted for each connected device, enabling equipment to be networked from the Cortex. Powering devices requires no pre-configuration and ensures that any device can be powered by the BANTAM system.
