Compact High-Density Tactical Energy Storage


Wednesday, August 20, 2014


The Office of Naval Research (ONR) is interested in receiving proposals on the topic of “Compact High-Density Tactical Energy Storage.” The objective is to encourage innovation, advance technology development, and foster technology transition that benefits future war-fighters and meets US Marine Corps future needs. One example of USMC future needs for energy storage is documented in the 2012 Marine Corps Science & Technology Strategic Plan1 that identifies Expeditionary Energy Science & Technology Objective, EE STO-04, entitled “Energy Storage Other than Liquid” as a technology needed to bridge the gap between on-site energy harvesting and demand. Another example is the 2011 Marine Corps Initial Capabilities Document (ICD) for Expeditionary Energy, Water and Waste2 which identifies five gaps to be addressed by its Mobile Electric Hybrid Power Sources (MEHPS) initiative: 1) Lack of existing capability to automatically match load to demand (3.LC.1); 2) Lack existing capability to autonomously and automatically match power production to consumption (6.LC.1); 3) Lack of existing capability to efficiently integrate multiple energy sources (6.LC.2); 4) Lack of common and/or renewable power sources (14.LC.1); and 5) No scalable expeditionary energy storage capability (22.LC.1).
