Title Smart Power Infrastructure Demonstration for Energy Reliability and Security (SPIDERS).
Publication Date May 2011
Media Count 15p
Personal Author B. Waugaman R. Roley
Abstract The ability of today's warfighter to command, control, deploy, and sustain forces is adversely impacted by a fragile, aging, and fossil fuel dependent electricity grid, posing a significant threat to national security. The SPIDERS JCTD will address four critical deficiencies: inability to protect task critical assets from loss of power due to cyber attack; inability to integrate renewable and other distributed generation electricity to power task critical assets in times of emergency; inability to sustain critical operations during prolonged power outages; and inability to manage installation electrical power and consumption efficiently, to reduce petroleum demand, carbon 'bootprint,' and costs.
