RFI Alert: USMC Tactical Energy Generation
We've posted on the great work of the Marines exFOB many times before, and I'm happy to be doing so once again to kick off 2014.
There's an RFI out for submissions on "Tactical Energy Harvesting," but rather than siphoning off watts from dormant humans encased in glass cocoons, the Marines want to leverage a fraction of the energy already generated by able bodied soldiers in motion. And there's another element related to capturing waste heat from generators.
Response due date is 21 February 2014. I'd expect the good folks down the street from me in Natick to have some ideas up their sleeves on this, but I know there are many other sources for thinking along these lines as well.
