|Summary||This research aims to identify current advanced battery requirement (baseline) and project anticipated battery requirements for the operating force in 2035 and 2050. The research may consider other forms of energy storage as appropriate and based on sponsor interest. The research may use a mission engineering perspective to determine the battery requirements. The analysis may include battery chemistry, energy density, charge/discharge rate, safety concerns, etc. of the battery. The research will attempt to answer the following questions: What is the current advanced battery requirement (baseline)? What is the projection for batteries required by the operating force by 2035? What is the projection for batteries required by the operating force by 2050? The research plan is: 1) Conduct lit review, 2) Identify existing battery systems aboard operational systems and near-term developments, 3) Identify/develop CONOPS and mission scenarios for future battery uses, 4) Conduct targeted lit review on battery technologies that may be viable in 2035 and 2050, 5) Conduct analysis of current power converter and control hardware/software, and battery energy management, 6) Analysis of future battery techs for safety, 7) Develop predictions and recommendations for future battery use across the fleet in 2035 and 2050.|
