Abstract:

Mobile military operations often require the use of generators for power. The loss of power due to a generator failure can compromise survivability. A military vehicle offers an option to quickly restore power, but misuse by demanding too much power by can destroy the vehicle's power system, possibly worsening an already bad situation. Use of several military vehicles together would spread the power demand burden, but compatibility of disjointed sources is a issue. This is a power export challenge. Likewise, military vehicles contain advanced technology for surveillance and defense. When stationary power is available, vehicle assets should be used without having to burn fuel or deplete the vehicle's batteries. Future electric vehicles will depend on power sources to recharge batteries. This is a power import challenge. This program addresses the challenges of vehicle power export and import by using advanced power management to provide safe and robust power solutions that will not compromise the primary mission of the vehicle.
