Abstract
Today's special operations soldier must pack over 75 pounds of gear through a wide range of environmental extremes. Those 75 pounds consist of mission essential electronic devices with 25 of those pounds consigned to onetime use batteries. For issues of stealth, stamina, and sustainment, it is crucial we reduce the load on our special ops forces while enhancing their performance with state of the art mission critical systems. The SHOT Hybrid Power Manager System (HPM) is the ideal solution for this problem. The SHOT HPM System is a high efficiency, light weight, rugged hybrid power manager that can harvest energy from many different input sources while supplying multiple outputs for host equipment usage. It incorporates load sharing technology ideal for preserving battery life when operating pulse power load hardware. Additionally, it will provide the user real-time, current and collected system data and other information as necessary to optimize energy use, performance and conservation. Our design approach illustrates an HPM system that can be operated autonomously or manually depending on the needs of the user.
