Abstract:

Advancements in military communications technology will enable better information gathering and decision making but require reliable, robust, quiet, and highly portable electrical power that can be provided by a Free-Piston Stirling Engine generator system. Stirling Technology Company's (STC) experience with space power systems indicates that substantial mass reduction can be achieved through material selection, advanced alternator and heater head designs, and system-level optimization. STC experience with low-cost commercial Combined Heat and Power systems provides cost reduction approaches including assembly improvements, and part redesigns to use automated processes such as stamping and casting. STC will leverage previous mass and cost reduction research into a conceptual design for a Lightweight Stirling Power System design in the 1- to 2-kW range capable of powering Future Combat System hardware in vehicle, robotic, or man-portable platforms.
