Abstract
Company Commanders looking to effectively employ renewable energy systems need a planning tool to ensure that the impact of renewable energies is positive on company operations. With the development of a suitable software application and standard operating procedures renewable energy technologies can offer Commanders significant battlefield advantages. Adaptive Materials developed a software application during the SBIR Phase I that identified optimal power source selection for particular mission profiles. Adaptive Materials is proposing for the SBIR Phase II to expand upon the software application to include the functionality to select a mix of renewable power sources based upon current equipment availability, mission-suitability, environmental factors, as well as user-specified preferences. The application will significantly increase the availability to Commanders of reliable and current information on renewable energy systems and their ability to enhance the capability of the Company. A Company’s combat effectiveness will be increased by the incorporation of sensible renewable energy technologies, reducing the logistical challenges associated with a purely logistics fuel and battery solution. These challenges include the price of the fuel, the equipment and manpower needed to move it, and the vulnerability of Warfighters assigned to protect the fuel convoys.
