Tactical Power System

Project Type

Project Replace


The Tactical Power System project will replace all tactical generators ranging from 2kW to 60kW power output, including the Tactical Quiet generators with a smart energy and power management system to generate, store and distribute electricity. In order to realize procurement efficiencies, the equipment capabilities articulated in the Operational Support Capability series of Projects will now be addressed by the Canadian Army Equipment Program. As part of this initiative this project will now incorporate the requirements of the Smart Energy and Power Management project.


The Tactical Power System project will supply the necessary power to the multitude of electrical equipment used by the Canadian Armed Forces, such as radios, command posts, computers, lighting, heaters and air conditioning systems to be operated as designed. The distribution and management systems will include safe and suitable equipment and procedures to maintain electrical power systems on operations.
