The AEE REMM (Renewable Energy Mission Module) team has been asked by Oshkosh to alter a module designed by Oshkosh to be used as a mobile power source for military units on deployment to be used as disaster relief in the case of natural disasters such hurricanes, wildfires, or earthquakes.
Oshkosh Corporation designs and builds the specialty trucks and truck bodies and access equipment. One such example includes military trucks that produce their own electric power to be shared across a grid to help power a mobile military base. While known around campus for their impressive military vehicles, Oshkosh also makes buses, lifts, and disaster relief vehicles. The REMM team hopes to demonstrate that military technology has uses in the civilian arena.
