Abstract
Our goal is to deliver a integrated hybrid power management device to the special operations soldier to minimize the burden of carrying unnecessary weight due to various batteries. Our proposed device includes a programmable voltage output, simple user interface, and a modular design that allows the system to be tailored to specific mission profiles. The system will include an LCD text display that will provide information in real time to allow for mission vital decisions to be made immediately. The power manager will be extremely rugged in design as part of a continued commitment by AMI to produce equipment suitable for military use. It is our belief that the proposed power manager / harvester system is a technology that goes hand in hand with our ultimate goal of delivering a power system with unparalleled energy density. It is our ultimate hope that such a device makes our Solid Oxide Fuel Cell system the obvious choice for almost any military operation.
