AbstractAn electric power source is needed that is two-man portable or lighter, operates on logistics fuels (JP-8, diesel), is quiet, and has a low thermal signature. We propose the MICE (Miniature Internal Combustion Engine) generator that is currently being developed by Aerodyne Research to deliver 500 W electrical power using logistics fuels. The design for this MICE generator will weigh less than 16 pounds. A MICE generator for the SOC-R application will have roughly the same weight. In the Phase I program, a MICE generator system will be designed specifically for the SOC-R application. An acoustic suppression design to reduce the acoustic emission to a "quiet" level of 40 dB or lower will be developed and demonstrated. In the Phase II program, several prototype units of the 500 W MICE generator will be developed and delivered.
