Abstract
A system is proposed that will enable large quantities (thousands) of batteries of various configurations to be transported, stored, maintained, monitored, and tracked by a single central control station. The wireless data transfer will enable monitoring of the status of these batteries by a local site representative or remote monitoring from any location or both. In addition, the system will also include provisions for maintaining, in like-new condition, large quantities of embedded batteries that would be prohibitive to replace or service in the field. The system will include innovative user friendly packaging that will not only save time during deployment, but will greatly reduce manpower required to distribute the batteries at the point of deployment. All of these features will be packaged in a standard transportable container that will serve as the central shop or service center when deployed. This structure will be a shelter that will be compatible with shore or shipboard power and be equipped with all required attachment points and fittings to comply with military as well as civilian transport.
