Soldiers of the future to self-generate power

Soldiers of the future to self-generate power

A sharp rise in soldier-worn power capabilities has resulted in a dramatic increase in the number, variety and weight of batteries carried by warfighters in the field. This weight prompted researchers to begin developing and evaluating small, lightweight, efficient, on-the-move, portable, energy-harvesting and distribution systems that eliminate the need to carry extra batteries.
