Cornerstone Research Group Inc.'s (CRG) demonstrated expertise in advanced optimization techniques and lightweight electric propulsion systems presents USSOCOM with the opportunity to obtain an embedded rechargeable power generation and management system capable of long endurance missions that is small, lightweight, and has low acoustic and thermal signatures. The proposing team's track record of innovation positions CRG for successful implementation of the TALOS hybrid electric power unit meeting USSOCOM s operational needs. During the Phase I effort, CRG envisions the use of advanced optimization and design tools to define the elements of the TALOS hybrid electric power unit that have the best balance of size, weight, power generation, and low-signature performance meeting USSOCOM s requirements.
