Combat support forces require mobile and portable charging stations for defense applications. The power source needs to be reliable, efficient and as silent as possible.
Energy demand: 1,000 Wh to 2,500 Wh/ day
Autonomy demand: Up to 4 days
Military operations and setting up of command posts often take place in impassable areas. In order to operate effectively, soldiers require instantly available power sources anywhere and anytime. Communication equipment, data transmission devices, portable radar systems, sensors etc. have to be reliably supplied with continuous, undetectable power. Military generators, the commonly used off-grid power source, are heavy and loud. In addition, they produce detectable emissions and a strong thermal signature which can easily be detected. As generators have high fuel consumption, supplying sufficient fuel often results in massive logistical efforts.
