Wearable Technologies, Portable Energy Sources

Soldiers of the future will generate own power
Wearable technologies may provide soldiers with on-the-move, portable energy and reduce the weight of gear they carry

November 19, 2014 - Wearable technologies may provide U.S. soldiers with on-the-move, portable energy and reduce the weight of gear they carry into combat.

Researchers at the Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center, or NSRDEC, here, are developing Soldier-borne energy-harvesting technologies.

During the Maneuver Fires Integration Experiment, or MFIX, a combined, multi-phase joint training exercise held in September 2014, at Fort Benning, Georgia, researchers tested prototype energy-harvesting technology solutions.

"My initial impression is that they fulfill a need for instant power generation on long-range missions when displaced from traditional resupply methods," said Sgt. 1st Class Arthur H. Jones, an infantryman with the Maneuver Center of Excellence who participated in the demonstration.

A sharp rise in Soldier-worn power capabilities has resulted in a dramatic increase in the number, variety and weight of batteries carried by warfighters in the field. read more>>>
