DETROIT ARSENAL—Last week U.S. Army DEVCOM Ground Vehicle Systems Center engineers, together with their counterparts at Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C5ISR) Center, demonstrated microgrid technology using a variety of tactical wheeled vehicles to field on-the-move power generation capabilities.

Called Secure Tactical Advanced Mobile Power, or STAMP for short – a Joint Capability Technology Demonstration (JCTD) – the team’s technology allows multiple vehicles to network their electrical systems together, sharing power generation in a small electrical grid. The resulting efficiencies in power generation for multiple vehicles and electrical power output represent significant fuel savings.
