The success of every military throughout history has been its ability to move, shoot, and communicate, which require power. In the modern era, technology has afforded military soldiers with the equipment that greatly enhances maneuverability through state of the art communications equipment. Such equipment creates significant power needs that are currently met through the use of expensive and heavy to carry disposable and rechargeable batteries. The limitation for improved complex communications, as well as weapon systems, is the ability to power such systems. The problem with alternative power sources has been the inefficiency, reliability, and convenience of such systems. This project provides an analysis of a new ubiquitous power source (Photo-Voltaic Power Converter) and the opportunities it can afford to individual soldiers in meeting existing power requirements. This paper calculates the savings and reports on critical user needs of the individual war fighter.
