Annex F. Special Operations Technology
Army Science and Technology Master Plan (ASTMP 1997)

4. Lightweight, Low-Volume Power Supply, Storage, Management, and Generation Technologies

Technologies that should have the potential to provide SOF with improved power sources, power storage, power generation, or power management capabilities for C4I systems, weapons, mobility platforms, and SOF equipment. Technologies should demonstrate significant improvements in power density, transportability (land, sea, and air), rechargeability, disposability, reliability, commonality, and size and weight characteristics. Substantially improved electrical generation storage and conditioning capabilities are required to enhance vehicle propulsion and support current and future weapons systems/concepts.
