SSTRM Power/Energy and Sustainability Technical Workshop

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
