Design News - News - Photovoltaic System Supplements Marines ...: A new mobile photovoltaic system... #photovoltaic

Researchers from the US Navy and the private sector have teamed up to design a new mobile photovoltaic system for charging batteries and supplying supplemental electricity. The system is meant to help the Marine Corp reduce fuel consumption. Photovoltaic systems generate power by converting solar radiation into direct current electricity. They are part of the host of efforts by the military to use renewable energy sources, including new energy systems that use solar and wind power, which we've discussed before . The Naval Research Laboratory has developed a photovoltaic prototype for the Marine Corps. The system is fitted to a standard USMC-issue backpack and includes a 10.5-inch x 15.5-inch solar panel that can generate more than 11W under 1-sun air mass of 1.5 illumination.
