Project Announcement: Generator/Alternator Redesign to Optimize Electrical Power and Improve Reliability

The US Army is partnering with industry and academia on an initiative to advance the state of new technologies and materials to rapidly redesign, integrate, and test a more capable military vehicle alternator that is cost effective, saves fuel, increases reliability, and extends the useful life of onboard battery. This initiative will pilot a new approach to develop innovative solutions of a 180-amp alternator that includes better technologies and materials in the windings to reduce internal resistance within the alternator to minimize maintenance downtime and maximize operating efficiencies.
