Battery Replacement Technology
The need for remote, localized power throughout the battlefield to run a host of electronic devices and equipment for soldier safety, situational awareness, comfort, and combat superiority is ever growing. Many of these devices are battery powered. Due to the regular need for replacements while in the field, the logistics and added weight requirements for US military personnel has become overly burdensome.
II-VI Marlow power generation technology can use the heat from combusted battlefield fuels to provide electrical power for soldier equipment, substituting the need for a surplus battery count with a portable power source: a small burner and a lightweight, rugged power generation system. This method of power generation provides a self-powered, low maintenance, and durable energy source designed to increase soldier mobility.
