The SMARTEN Project -Reduction of Energy Consumption in the Field
Co-presentation with COL Pavel MAŇAS
The Ministry of Defense of the Czech Republic launched a project to develop a conceptual solution aimed at reducing the energy consumption and fuel dependency in the operational field.
The two-year project will give impulses for further development of technologies and subsequent procurement processes of energy efficient solutions for the national deployable forces.
By the end of the first year (2016) a comprehensive concept will be published and discussed among the stakeholder community.
During 2017 laboratory tests and technology demonstrations will be conducted and assessed for interoperability with conventional equipment that is currently in use and for the total cost/savings.
