New and Replace Existing Systems


This project will obtain a smart energy and power management capability to manage, generate, store and distribute energy to a deployed Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) task force or exercise.

In order to realize procurement efficiencies, this project will be incorporated into the Canadian Army Equipment Program. The requirements defined within this project will now be delivered by the Tactical Power Systems project.


Current systems require improvement in generating clean, uninterrupted power and distributing it in an environmentally and energy-friendly way to reduce the CAF’s energy and logistics footprint. Future energy systems will be required to reduce the CAF’s reliance on traditional fossil fuels as an energy source for a deployed camp. The aim of this capability is to reduce sustainment demands at Main Camps and forward operating bases, reduce fuel and maintenance requirements, and reduce set-up time and energy costs. It must be modular and scalable to meet the requirements of various mission types and sizes.
