Abstract:

Power deficiencies have developed and presently continue to exist in numerous remote applications thus limiting mission effectiveness. The warfighter, first responder, personnel stationed in remote location as well as shelters, and command posts have been burdened with exhaustive amounts of electronics and demand for power has increased beyond the capability of supply and re-supply. The only viable solution to this problem is to equip the user with advanced battery technology, specifically high energy lithium-ion batteries, designed for this application. This paper will discuss the development of a man portable auxiliary power unit designed specifically to address these issues.
