Abstract:

Traditional material systems are designed and built for a single purpose. A composite wing is built to provide lift for an aerial vehicle, a window is designed to allow visible light into a building, and a road is designed to allow for the safe passage of ground vehicles. The multifunctional systems examined in this report add electrical power and energy capabilities to traditional material systems. These Multifunctional Energy Systems MFES are a novel approach to system optimization and can significantly improve their Size, Weight, and Power as well as Cost SWaP-C.
