Abstract:

ABSTRACT: A phase II program is proposed leading to integrate wireless inductive power transfer technology on two prototype tactical vests. The focus of the phase II program would be the development and evaluation of a full-scale inductive power transfer system on a PRC-152 radio by both modifying and interfacing its battery. Because a mating vest/pouch that contains inductive charging circuits so the PRC-152 charges automatically once the radio is inserted into the pouch. The prototypes developed in Phase II will be qualified against MIL-STD-810G and 461F. BENEFIT: By providing airmen with a patented wireless power transfer technology, it results in operational cost savings to the Air Force, while allowing it to be more responsive to the burdens of the dismounted airman. The convenience and user-friendliness of a wireless power transfer system can be commercialized immediately for electronic devices carried by border patrol, homeland security, and search and rescue personnel as well as for consumer electronic devices such as cell phones, smart phones, iPod/MP3 players, and tablet computers.
