US Army gives green light to shape vehicle electrification requirements
WASHINGTON — U.S. Army Futures Command has given the green light to the Maneuver Capabilities Development and Integration Directorate to develop a plan to equip tactical and combat vehicles with electric power, according to a Sept. 21 statement.
The directorate will begin drafting a requirements document for Tactical and Combat Vehicle Electrification, and will host an industry day Oct. 20 to share its electrification initiatives with industry.
CALSTART, an organization that focuses on clean technology transportation, and the Ground Vehicles Systems Center will co-host the event.
The electrification effort aims to decrease the Army’s reliance on fossil fuels. “The requirement also aims to increase operational reach across all maneuver formations through electric propulsion, which offers a variety of operational and tactical benefits,” a statement from the directorate read.
