Abstract

Adaptive Materials, Inc. (AMI) proposes to evaluate technologies and mission profiles for use in the development of an efficient power management system for the United States Marine Corps Distributed Operations Squads. The base Phase I effort will focus on optimizing existing AMI power management technology to analyze mission profiles and provide optimized power solutions for given combat load. This effort will culminate in a power management system designed specifically for the unique mission of the Distributed Operations Squad. With the execution of a Phase I option, AMI will deliver a working proof of concept power management suite. This system will provide detailed mission profiles and power usage reports, as well as enable highly efficient DC conversion to meet the energy requirements of the Distributed Operations Squad.
