Abstract:

Efficient Powertrain Technologies for High-Power Onboard Electrical Generation and Mobility. PURPOSE Provide efficient, reliable powertrain technologies that will improve the energy productivity of existing military ground vehicle engine-transmission while using less space, improving vehicle mobility, fuel consumption and reducing thermal load. Payoffs Improved vehicle mobility performance. Dramatically more electrical power available to meet future vehicle equipment demands. Improved engine power density on logistic fuel. Quieter engine idle to reduce vehicle acoustic signature during silent watchmounted surveillance missions. Transitions to follow on ATO-D which will provide TRL 6 efficient powertrains to PM customers HBCT, SBCT by FY17.
