Abstract:

Deployed Basic Expeditionary Airfield Resource (BEAR) bases not only require tent power to operate equipment, but also to provide environmental control since they are often located in regions having extreme ambient conditions. Environmental control for current Air Force BEAR bases is supplied by JP-8 fueled heaters or grid powered air conditioning systems. Requiring a power grid for tent power and environmental control complicates the set-up of individual tents and limits the ability to quickly set-up an individual tent in a remote location. An ideal tent design would be completely self-sufficient, with the ability to provide power to- or draw power from- an existing grid while maintaining a satisfactory tent environment and supplying airmen with desalinated water. Currently, there is no integrated system that meets all of these requirements. Mainstream Engineering has a preliminary system design capable of meeting all of these requirements while providing significant fuel savings. The fuel savings is a result of utilizing the renewable energy that is available is addition to storing any generated power that is not needed for later use.
