TEKEVER presented its Project Portable Energy Modules for the Dismounted Soldier (MEP) at the INEGI’s 25th Anniversary celebrations.
An ongoing development, the MEP Project envisages the creation of two portable energy modules, rechargeable with the soldier’s movement, and a module dedicated to the energy storage and management. Developed by TEKEVER Communication Systems, this component is part of the wireless tactical communication system (WAC), which also provides audio and video signals and positioning data. In a consortium with INEGI, Alma Design and the Infantry Practical School, TEKEVER also undertakes the responsibility for the integration activities involving the prototypes.
Already being field-tested by the Portuguese Army, this equipment will enable the Portuguese Armed Forces to have one of the most innovative technological solutions in Europe for the soldier’s autonomy and energy management problem.
