Abstract:

The studys purpose was to conduct quick electrical and environmental control assessments of Army systems to support Project Managers. Five assessments were undertaken along with changes in the System Assessment Model which automates the assessments computations. An assessment was conducted on the Deployed Medical System operating in a contaminated environment - it had insufficient air conditioning capacity and poor setup. The next generation Ground Base Radar assessment revealed a large requirement for electric power 500kW and chilled water to cool the semiconductor amplifiers. The Individual Power program was assessed and placed on a critical path schedule with resource requirements. The Electronic Fighting Vehicle System was assessed for environmental control the Armys and the integrators estimate of electric power dissipated varied considerably a graph of power dissipated versus air conditioning required was provided, plus some recommended improvements. Finally, the electric power requirements and distribution for Force Provider an in- theater, tentcontainer rest and relaxation facility proceeded to collect data necessary for the assessment but lacked a facility layout.
