This research built upon previous work which developed a data base for advanced terrestrial energy systems ATES, and a computerized methodology for multiple criteria decision making MCDM. Research determined the electric power MEP and facilities energy generating system FEGS needs. Advanced technologies have little potential to enhance FEGS operational effectiveness, but offer cost savings, especially for remote site and self sufficiency missions. MEP mission support can be enhanced by free piston systems in small sizes, by kinematic stirling and phosphoric acid fuel cells in mid sized applications flightline, communications support and by regenerative gas turbines in large systems. RD programs are recommended to achieve the enhanced operational and cost potential.
