Contract: M67854-04-C-3048
Award Amount: $599,000.00
 

Abstract:

There has been a recent increase in efforts to develop small/medium robots for military use. These robots, or UGVs (Unmanned Ground Vehicles), are sophisticated pieces of equipment that are beginning to represent many of the technological advancements found in future/prototype vehicles. One such technology that offers many benefits is the HEV (Hybrid Electric Vehicle) drive system. These drive systems have proven to be effective for lowering fuel consumption, emissions, acoustic signatures, and improving mobility for other applications. UQM Technologies, Inc. is proposing to continue efforts on an HE drive system for the UGV applications that offers the mentioned benefits, emphasizing affordability when compared to a conventional drive system. The Phase II work will conclude with the delivery of a drive system (motor, dual controller, and 120VAC auxiliary supply) capable of meeting the requirements of a typical UGV application. Additional options can be exercised that will also supply a highly efficient and integrated generator/controller, vehicle integration, and continued vehicle specific support to adjust system performance based on unique conditions.
