ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. (March 30, 2020) — The Department of Defense has selected a mobile power program from Army Futures Command to increase the speed at which on-the-move power capabilities are delivered to the battlefield.
The Secure Tactical Advanced Mobile Power program is based on successful science and technology products from the Army’s Energy Informed Operations program. AFC’s Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C5ISR) Center will co-lead the joint capability technology demonstration (JCTD).
“STAMP will integrate multiple power resources — such as tactical vehicles, batteries and generators — to achieve optimum power performance,” said Michael Gonzalez, C5ISR Center power management team lead. “The technologies will be highly tailorable to mission needs and extend the operational reach of units within a smaller footprint by improving power distribution, storage, monitoring and maintenance.”
DoD will demonstrate a fast-forming vehicle hybrid power system using a variety of heavy duty vehicles to field on-the-move charging capabilities, according to Gonzalez.
The JCTD effort is anticipated to begin in 2020. It includes partners from across DoD: U.S. Indo-Pacific Command, U.S. Central Command, U.S. Transportation Command, Army Project Manager Expeditionary Energy and Sustainment Systems, Army Project Manager Mission Command, Marine Corps Expeditionary Energy Office, Terminal High Altitude Area Defense Program and the Missile Defense Agency.
“We are committed to providing optimized and intelligent power solutions to the field,” said Elizabeth Ferry, C5ISR Center Power chief. “STAMP will enhance Warfighters’ mobility and flexibility to execute distributed, cross-domain maneuvers during multi-domain operations.”

The C5ISR Center is the Army’s applied research and advanced technology development center for C5ISR capabilities. As the Army’s primary integrator of C5ISR technologies and systems, the center develops and matures capabilities that support all six Army modernization priorities, enabling information dominance and tactical overmatch for the joint warfighter.
The C5ISR Center is an element of the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command. Through collaboration across the command’s core technical competencies, CCDC leads in the discovery, development and delivery of the technology-based capabilities required to make Soldiers more lethal to win our nation’s wars and come home safely. CCDC is a major subordinate command of the U.S. Army Futures Command.
