Significant fuel economy improvements in diesel based equipment for military and non-military applications may be achieved by tailored programs targeting 3 areas of opportunity.

Driver performance

Variations in driver performance can result in vehicle-to-vehicle fuel economy differences as large as 15%.

Vehicle performance

Improvements in vehicle idling, shore power, and operational readiness can add an additional 10% to fuel economy.

Electric power demand

Typically, the 24VDC vehicle power is delivered using 28 volt alternators, with converters or a second alternator to provide for power delivery is extremely inefficient, typically 50% -30%.

Global Defense Electronics approach is a neural network based model generation and verification technique having sensitivity as appropriate to extract trend and variance information useful for both prognostics and for optimization of engine, drive-train, and accessory equipment performance.
