Report No. ARL-TR-4693
Authors: S. Gilman, D. Chu, B. Geil, B. Morgan, and T. Podlesak
Date/Pages: December 2008; 24 pages
Abstract: This report was inspired by a request from Mr. Scott Feldman of the Army Natick Soldier Research Development and Engineering Center (NSRDEC) for a survey of technologies that might enable the development of a militarized 250 W battery charger, preferably JP-8-fueled, within the next few years. While the short-term prospects are limited, a number of technologies are likely to bear fruit in the longer term. This report reflects the status of the various technologies considered in November 2007.
