Military Support

Personnel from the Power Systems Engineering Department have been involved with the U.S. Air Force Space Command since 1987.

Ascension Island​ – worked in conjunction with other partners to design, develop and install power systems with great performance and stability.

Cape Canaveral Air Force Station – performed detailed short-circuit, load flow and coordination analyses of the entire Cape Canaveral Air Force Station 13.8-kV distribution system. We have helped the Air Force plan 10 years' worth of upgrades and correction to its Cape grid at a program cost in excess of $100 million.

Reliability Assessments – provided the U.S. Air Force with numerous power system reliability, availability and maintainability assessments at various space command facilities, including Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Base and the Maui Satellite Tracking Facility. These assessments allow the Air Force to plan power system upgrades and reconfigurations to ensure the facilities can perform their missions.

Cape Canaveral Air Force Station Range Operations Control Center – in conjunction with the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, developed and designed a 7-MW standby diesel power plant for Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The power plant also included computerized peak-shaving control capabilities.​​
