A Marine Corps forward operating base is a self-contained remote temporary military base designed to support combat operations in an austere environment, often without pre-existing infrastructure. Similar in function to a permanent military base, this temporary base contains planning spaces, billeting tents, and a variety of equipment that all require electricity. As there is no utility grid, the primary source of a temporary base's electrical power is provided on site by diesel generators.
