Abstract:

This report summarizes performance characteristics of candidate power sources planned particularly for use by indigenous forces of friendly, underdeveloped nations. Older types of power sources, such as heat engines, hydroelectric and magnetohydrodynamic, are suggested for continued research and development. Newer concepts, such as fuel cells, thermoelectric, thermionic, and solar, are investigated for special applications. A table which summarizes in detail the status of technologic development of power sources is included.
