Light infantry

Abstract:
US troops could soon be using lightweight plastic solar panels based on nano-engineered particles to power their battlefield equipment. The US Army is funding prototypes of a power technology developed by Massachusetts-based Konarka, a specialist in photovoltaic systems, in a bid to reduce the number of batteries soldiers need to carry into combat.
