Fuel is the second-highest battlefield throughput commodity behind water. In fact, ~65% of the fuel consumed in the theatre is for fuel transportation to the battlefield. To improve the fuel consumption and the quantity of forward-deployed fuel, Techno-Sciences, Inc. (TSi) proposes innovative, open architecture software that implements optimal hybrid control algorithms for intelligent power management of ground combat vehicles with anti-idling technology (Hybrid Intelligent Power Controller HIPCo). HIPCo will target the no-idle requirements, while increasing battery life and improving fleet efficiency. HIPCo will also reduce fuel consumption by at least 10%. In the battlefield, another advantage of HIPCo will be during silent watch by reducing exhaust emissions, noise and thermal signatures.
