Research Institution
Marine Design Dynamics, Inc. is pleased to propose an advanced, analytical method for the development of concepts and systems to improve energy efficiency and reduce logistics requirements to sustain USMC Forward Operating Bases (FOB). In its simplest form, our concept is to provide a capability to design more energy efficient FOBs, or given a fixed FOB design, to develop better operating guidelines and principles for its operation. A model to support this capability and a script guiding its effective use will be developed. MDD"s solution is through the use of the FOB Energy Generation, Distribution, and Consumption (EGDC) model, which will be the key tool to assist with the assessment of efficiency gains in the full spectrum of FOB energy generation, distribution, and consumption systems. MDD intends to leverage past performance experience, coupled with subject matter expert analysis, in developing a pragmatic and cost effective EGDC model. It will incorporate parameters representing the structure performance of present FOB energy system configurations. The consideration of FOB energy generation, distribution, and consumption as a total integrated system within the model supports the establishment of a variety of reliable baselines for later assessment, establishing credibility of subsequent analysis and reporting.
