Following the initial Visioning and Future Capabilities workshop, the first Soldier Systems Technology Roadmap (SSTRM) technical workshop was on “Power/Energy and Sustainability.” It was held on September 22-23, 2009 in Vancouver, Canada. We provide below the opening presentation by LCol. Bodner, followed by Volume 1 – the workshop report, Volume 2 – a compilation of the presentations from the workshop, and Volume 3 – the technology themes and collaborations that were selected through the workshop process. Documents are available at our SSTRM Documents Download Page.
After the workshop, the Technical Sub-Committee for this Technical Domain further refined all the available information and organized it into the following four themes of primary importance to the future soldier:
- Theme 1: In-Situ Power Generation (fuel cells and harvesting)
- Theme 2: Power Sources (storage)
- Theme 3: Power and Data Distribution
- Theme 4: Distributed Power Management
We encourage anyone who is interested in the SSTRM to visit Industry Canada’s SSTRM site at http://soldiersystems-systemesdusoldat.collaboration.gc.ca/eic/site/sstrm-crtss.nsf/eng/home
