The US Navy needs a compact vehicle-mounted generator that can provide up to 15 kW power in order to meet the power and energy demands of current Counter-Unmanned Aerial Systems (C-UASs) and allow for future mission growth. The auxiliary gensets currently used by the Navy provide 5 kW power at a gross weight of 300 lbs each. Larger auxiliary generators in the 10-15 kW range weigh up to 500 lbs each. In order to meet the Navy’s needs, Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) will collaborate with Aveox to develop the Compact Magnet Alternator with Integrated Liquid-cooling (CMAIL). Rather than relying on an auxiliary diesel engine, the CMAIL draws up to 15 kW power from the serpentine belt of the MRZR Alpha’s 1.5 L Ford EcoBlue engine. The integrated cooling system increases the compactness of the design and simplifies the installation process.
