This Specification establishes the system-level performance, design, development, and test requirements for the Advanced Mobile integrated Power System AMPS Science and Technology Objective STO. The purpose of the AMPS STO is to rapidly develop a configurable power system capable of supporting electrical power and power management requirements to integrate Vehicle Electronics Vetronics, Command, Control, Communications, Computers Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance C4ISR, and embedded simulation capabilities into Future Combat Systems FCS platforms, including robotic Unmanned Ground Vehicles UGVs. The AMPS technologies include Power Generation, Energy Storage, Smart Power Architecture, Modeling and Simulation. AMPS will allow integration and use of emerging commercially developed automotive systems and sub-systems 42VDC, 120 VAC, etc. The AMPS will capitalize on prior and parallel research investments from the National Automotive Center NAC on Smart Batteries and Fuel Cells as well as commercial industry on power modules, alternators and 42V electrical components. Technology from the AMPS STO will be able to support the Multifunction UtilityLogistics and Equipment Vehicle MULE UGV, FCS and Stryker Brigade Combat Team SBCT programs.
