Sources Sought: Electrical Propulsion and High Electrical Storage for Ground Combat Vehicles

NCMS is assisting the U.S. Army in seeking an industry partner(s) that have concepts and/or technologies to design and develop electrical propulsion and high electrical storage engines for future Army Ground Combat Vehicles.  Concepts or technologies could address any of the following:

  • How can an electrical propulsion and high electrical storage system benefit a tracked combat vehicle platform and be integrated into a combat vehicle in the 40-60-ton weight range?
  • Inter- and intra-vehicle architecture assumptions for combat vehicle integration utilizing electrical propulsion and high electrical storage.
  • Analysis of the implications of size, weight, and power (SWaP) to the vehicle.
  • Analysis of whether this engine can support the growth of the vehicle and if so, how much (specifically scalable to a tracked combat vehicle in the 40-60-ton range).
  • Analysis of militarization of any commercially available solutions.

Briefings and white papers addressing any of the aforementioned technologies should be proposed only.  Responses will be selected for the full development of the briefings/white papers and used, at a minimum, to inform requirements for future manned and unmanned ground combat vehicle systems.  Unique and innovative technologies that demonstrate technical maturity may be recommended for future cooperative research and development projects.

Interested parties should complete the following form including:

  • Background of capability summary
  • Examples of where the capability is currently used if any
  • URLs to corporate presentations including engineering, manufacturing and testing capabilities
  • Cost Summary Form

Interested parties should complete the following form no later than Wednesday, September 30.  Any questions can be directed to Debbie Lilu at debral@ncms.org
