Research Institution

To address the SOCOM need for a power supply for the Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit (TALOS), Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to investigate new Research Enabled Activity Consolidated To Optimize Resources (REACTOR). This proposed research is intended to explore current state-of-the-art energy storage solutions with an eye toward development of emergent technologies and innovations. The nascent innovations on the technical horizon will be investigated and evaluated through the vehicle of an in depth trade study that will enable SOCOM to make informed decisions as to which avenues merit development and potential funding. In Phase I, POC will investigate the feasibility of existing energy storage solutions and evaluate their suitability. Further, POC will compile a matrix of new technologies and grade each technology on the bases of SOCOM requirements including energy density, size, weight and power (SWaP). In Phase II, POC plans to develop and demonstrate a working prototype proving the feasibility of one or more of the downselected technologies evaluated in the suitability matrix developed under Phase I.
