Abstract:

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 Recovery Act provides 300 million in funding for the Department of Defense Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation RDTE. This program investigates technologies that can satisfy capability gaps, present opportunities for military applications, or spur initiatives within industry. Efforts focus on engine efficiencies cost-effective solar energy photovoltaics fuel cells alternative fuel testing mobile waste-to-energy and tactical micro-grids. RDTE provides significant benefits to the general public with emphasis on transitioning military relevant technology from the laboratory to fielded capability. Transition shall occur either directly, through development of capability in industry, or through formal acquisitions. The Near Term Energy Efficient Technologies Program will conduct 51 research and development projects. Project titles, locations, and estimated costs were provided in the Reports to Congress submitted on March 20, 2009 and April 28, 2009. These projects cover these five topics Fuel Optimization for Mobility Platforms Facility Energy Initiatives Operational EfficienciesCommercial Practices Domestic Energy SupplyDistribution Tactical Power SystemsGenerators.
