Abstract
Bennett Aerospace proposes to develop an innovative method of generating electrical power via soldier-worn systems. Our approach integrates energy harvesting structures into various locations on garments and equipment in order to collect kinetic energy. The structures are lightweight and flexible. BENEFIT: Benefits to this approach are numerous in that it provides a simple, though novel, method of direct transformation of kinetic energy into electrical. It is an ideal solution that meets the pressing need for charging batteries quickly and relatively effortlessly in the field.
