Abstract:

The current fuel economy of military vehicles limits the effectiveness of the deployment into various theaters. As Future Combat Systems (FCS) vehicles are developed, fuel economy, overall weight, performance, power generation, survivability, emissions and maintenance will highlight the need for hybrid vehicle designs. The first step towards a hybrid vehicle design is an Integrated Starter Alternator (ISA). By utilizing an ISA, technologies such as start / stop and idle down can be implemented to increase fuel savings and reduce harmful emissions. Additionally, through the use of Permanent Magnet Machines increased generation capabilities will be available to support future technologies such as; active suspension, active differential, electric motors and defrosting technologies. Investigation of multiple ISA technology partners by GS Engineering (GSE) will create a detailed design matrix that will highlight all successful integration technologies of our partners and how they can be deployed across specific vehicle platforms. Utilizing comprehensive experience in vehicle design and analysis, a selected ISA will be integrated into a selected target vehicle. This integration employs the proven strengths of GSE in the areas of design and analysis, vehicle integration and allows for an ISA integration that fulfills all of the required needs of an ISA.
