The Armys Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center TARDEC commissioned this study in support of Department of Defense DOD vehicle electrification initiatives. The project goals were to evaluate the duty cycle profiles of non-tactical vehicles NTVs at Fort Carson in order to assess electrification potential. Vehicle mileage logs exist for the NTV fleet, allowing assessment of periodic usage. However, it is recognized that total mileage accumulated over finite periods of time is not a useful parameter by itself for identifying electrification candidates because it may derive from a mix of very long and very short trips that can make recharging problematic.
