Research Institution
Stirling Technology Company (STC) has developed several Free-Piston Stirling Engine (FPSE) generators with outputs ranging from 10 W to 3 kW. These engines are very quiet, adaptable to virtually any fuel, and can run continuously. However, existing units are relatively heavy. STC proposes to leverage over 2 decades of development into a Special Operations Power System (SOPS) that directly addresses weight reductions, without sacrifice in other desirable features, to provide Special Operations Forces (SOF) with a unique and superior solution to the existing lack of suitable field power systems. MSE Technology Applications, Inc. (MSE), a well-respected integrator of military equipment, will assist in the development of the SOPS to ensure its suitability for use aboard the Special Operations Craft Riverine (SOCR) combat craft. Like all existing STC generators, the proposed SOPS will be fully scalable down to a few watts and up to several kilowatts with the same basic architecture and silent, reliable, zero-maintenance characteristics.
