Challenge 5: Intelligent Power Management and Distribution System (IPMDS):

Develop an enhanced Intelligent Power Management Distribution System (IPMDS) to optimize the production, distribution and use of Army electrical power.

The potential benefits of this capability may include an improved ability to meet demand at the point of need, reduce convoy requirements, reduced fuel distribution logistics footprint, and increased endurance for widely dispersed, expeditionary forces.

Potential technology solution candidates include:

(1) Intelligent Power Management and Distribution System
(2) Improved Power Distribution Illumination System (IPDISE)
(3) Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC)
