Abstract:

As the U.S. Army develops the next generation of combat vehicles, the electrical power required to operate these vehicles is projected to increase substantially. These vehicles will be asked to perform additional mission roles, such as silent watch and export power, and incorporate power intensive equipment such as next-generation sensors and jamming devices. High power density systems are required to provide this additional power while still fitting into the current vehicle space claim. The Army recognizes fuel cells as a potential solution as they have high power densities and are more efficient than comparable internal combustion IC engines.
