Title: Fuel Efficient Forward Operating Base (FOB)
Agency: DOD
Contract: M67854-13-C-6500
Award Amount: $749,975.00


The objective of this project is to develop a software based FOB energy simulation model that will enable the USMC to effectively analyze FOB energy efficiency under various configurations and assess the impacts of current and emerging conventional and alternative power systems. At the end of Phase II, MDD will have developed a comprehensive energy simulation and analysis tool, with the following capabilities: a) Survey and assess the energy usage of individual equipment and energy systems in any given USMC FOB b) Make recommendations that will allow for improvements to FOB energy usage, with the suggested changes applying to configuration, operation, and/or equipment c) Measure and assess the efficacy of implemented FOB energy improvements d) Measure and assess current and emerging technologies and techniques and assess the efficacy of them on FOB energy usage e) Make future recommendations to USMC GT & ES pertaining to FOB energy management and operational optimization
