Abstract:

The Power-Aware Smart Submunitions PASS project is funded through the DARPA IPTO Power Aware Computing and Communications PACC program. PASS has investigated the application of power-aware technology to military systems in general and smart submunitions in particular. This final report presents a summary of that investigation as well as several research notes included in the appendix. The research notes include a technology roadmap, description of how applications must interact with the power-management infrastructure, and methods to manage energy versus delay tradeoffs. Our conclusion is that application developers must determine the connections between energy management and optimization of mission goals technology that performs energy conservation is valuable but, by itself, is not competent to optimally achieve mission objectives.
