Abstract
ABSTRACT: ArmorWorks will develop an airman"s personal power distribution system that employs inductively coupled power transfer at connection nodes to portable electronic equipment. The system reduces battery logistic burdens created by the use of airman mounted electronic devices and will continue to be ever more practical as advances in power management reduce peripheral device power requirements. BENEFIT: The airman"s personal power distribution system developed in this program can be used for soldier-portable power transfer to recharge and/or power battlefield computers, hand held radios, GPS"s, thermal imaging devices, and laser designators and range finders. Commercial applications include Wireless battery chargers, power electronic devices carried by border patrol, homeland security, and search and rescue personnel.
