The Army leverages significant power and energy research executed by industry. However, unique DoD and Army needs for power, mission length, and environmental concerns require government expertise. Army requirements are driven by the need for mission success, which includes soldier safety, while the commercial sector is driven by the marketplace. As a result, the science and technology drivers for the Army include increasing electric power requirements for advanced weapons, unique military systems, and improved operational capabilities including increased reach and reduced risk. The criticality of fulfilling military requirements defines where the Army focuses its resources as well as enabling it to accept a higher level of technological risk than the commercial sector. Some active R&D efforts include high energy density storage, high power systems, thermal management, long duration power sources, alternative energy sources, and energy management. This talk will focus on those energy and power challenges that are Army unique.
