Abstract
Currently, diesel generators are typically used to supply electrical power to soldiers in the field. Diesel generators suffer from wet stacking at partial loads, high fuel costs and resupply logistics, and high transportation risk. The development of a portable wind power generating system capable of being stowed and transported in a standard TRICON container would be a highly desirable alternative to diesel generators. The overall goal of this proposal is to develop a low cost, two-person deployable, wind power generation system capable of producing 300 W of electrical power and be transported inside a TRICON container. During the Phase I program, a complete detailed design of the proposed system will be completed, and a full-scale prototype will be fabricated and demonstrated. At the completion of the Phase I program, Mainstream Engineering"s wind power generation system will be a Technology Readiness Level 4. With a successful Phase I Mainstream anticipates rapidly transitioning this technology from a R & D program to Mainstream"s production department during the Phase II. Mainstream will continue to utilize CMCI as a subcontractor to supply TRICON containers, as they currently do for Mainstream"s TRICON Refrigerated Container System (TRCS) program.
