Lockheed Martin to Partner with SkyBuilt Power to Develop the Integrated Smart-BEAR Power System (ISBPS) for the U.S. Air Force

May 6, 2010 – Lockheed Martin, the global security company, and BCSE member SkyBuilt Power, the leader in self-contained, rapidly deployable, renewable and hybrid energy power systems, announced today a partnership to develop the Integrated Smart-BEAR Power System (ISBPS) for the U.S. Air Force. The Basic Expeditionary Airfield Resources (BEAR) program equips U.S. forces with lightweight, air-transportable assets used to establish mobile air bases. ISBPS is an intelligent system that will integrate a variety of energy sources, including renewables, into the existing BEAR power grid, with goals to reduce fuel consumption by 25 percent, alleviate logistics burdens and improve power availability.
