Power Security for Remote Communications at Fort Irwin

Fort Irwin National Training Center is a major United States military training area in the Mojave Desert. The facility has historically relied on lead acid batteries to provide backup power to mission critical wireless radio transmitters at nine sites. In 2018, Fort Irwin hired Northern Arizona Wind & Sun to design a more reliable off-grid power security solution for remote communications. The solar+SimpliPhi storage system includes 9 solar arrays comprised of 256W PV modules, four PHI 3.4 kWh batteries, a...

Bringing Energy to the Tactical Edge in Ghazni Province, Afghanistan

The U.S. Army’s “Energy to the Tactical Edge” effort (E2E) kicked off in 2011 to reduce troop reliance on fuel resupply operations by curtailing use of or entirely replacing conventional diesel generators. The Forge Provides Continuous Reliable Power And Eliminates The Need For Fossil Fuels. (Image courtesy of ZeroBase) This effort was inspired not only to contain costs, with the full burdened cost of fuel including air transport, parachute drops and more estimated at $400/gallon, but more importantly to save lives....

When Failure is Not an Option

Beginning in 2010, SimpliPhi was engaged by the U.S. Department of Defense to provide mission-critical access to power on Forward Operating Bases in Iraq and Afghanistan. At stake was troop safety related to diesel offset and lead acid replacement. The result of that partnership today is a portfolio of robust energy storage and management systems that provide reliable off-grid, mobile and portable power.
