Publication Type


  • CERDEC conducted a power assessment in 2008
    • Three Command Posts (CPs): the Brigade Main, the Infantry Battalion CP and the MAIN Tactical CP.
    • Eight days of mission equipment operation.
  • AMSAA requested SURVICE Engineering Company conduct a study to account for the fuel consumed.
  • By then end of the study, SURVICE had accounted for 97% of the reported fuel used during TOCFEST.
  • Resulting model can be used to predict fuel usage for TOCs – any weather conditions, shelters, shelter configuration, mission equipment layout, generators, and ECUs.
