Abstract:

Physical and electrical characteristics of a proposed standard family of power sources for manpack equipments are presented. Versatility is achieved by the application of a variety of electrochemical systems in appropriate cell sizes which results in a wide range of capacities, energy densities, and other factors of importance to field application. Each member of the family will have a standard manpack configuration horizontal cross section and will have an identical physical and electrical interface which will mate with a standard equipment interface to form an integral equipment-power source manpack assembly. Thus the operator will not be limited to a single, unique power source for his equipment for all missions, but will be able to select a power source to match the mission. Author
