ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. (Jan. 13, 2015) - As command, control, communications, computer, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities have continued to increase for the individual Soldier and across the battlefield, so have the power and energy requirements to support these devices.

The U.S. Army’s power and energy community continues to develop novel and advance power and energy technologies to support the growing demand. Creating innovative and efficient power generation and conversion technologies and more effective methods to predict, manage and distribute power, allows Soldiers to operate longer between resupply and conduct more effective and expeditionary missions.

The U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center’s Command, Power and Integration Directorate (CERDEC CP&I), an element of the U.S. Army Materiel Command’s Research, Development and Engineering Command, creates interoperable power solutions that maximize Soldier and Small Unit mission effectiveness, reduce the power burden to the Soldier, and enable energy independence – power at any location with minimized resupply.
