Abstract:

The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of an energy efficient Environmental Control Unit (ECU) that significantly reduces generator fuel consumption at military forward operating bases (FOB). This system, coined Remote Environmental Control Unit (RECU) promises to provide a reliable supply of conditioned air to tactical shelters without the use of conditioned air ductwork. Through the introduction of this high efficiency environmental equipment, overall power consumption, peak demand and consequently FOB generator fuel requirements will be significantly reduced. A key benefit of RECU deployment will be a considerable reduction in generator maintenance logistics compared to that currently necessary to support ECU operation and other power requirements at FOBs. RECU development will integrate several proven energy efficient technologies into an easily deployed unit without the need for modification of existing military FOB infrastructure.
