Abstract:

Since the implementation of distributed operations with a higher density of tactical field radios, optics and electrical tactical equipment, the demand for batteries has increased significantly. While advances in technology have increased the lethality of Department of Defense DoD forces, sustainment and increased resupply convoys have increased the risk of logistical support and costs. This thesis examines the viability, cost savings, and operational weight associated with the use of rechargeable batteries.
