AbstractHeavy Duty Army vehicle energy storage systems are under increasing demand to supply energy to a multitude of electrical sub-systems on the vehicle, to deliver this energy for a sustained period of time for silent watch missions and to do it at wide temperature extremes. Many current vehicle platforms are not currently able to meet these stringent demands and thus fail to meet silent watch requirements and in many cases cannot reliably start under extreme cold conditions. Global ET will address the cold starting problem with a solution that can be implemented quickly and inexpensively and that can be immediately applied to current vehicle fleets as part of a Spiral Upgrade initiative as well as become the approach for future military needs. Further research in Phase II will include investigating the use an innovative configuration of advanced battery chemistry as opposed to a ultracapacitor / battery combination solution. Global ET is uniquely qualified for an efficient implementation of the Phase II SBIR as much of the work being done on an existing Global ET Phase II Project is directly transferable to a solution of the cold starting problem.
