Tactical Microgrid Standards Consortium (TMSC)
In partnership with USACE and ERDC labs, TMSC is a Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL).
TMSC is developing a military standard (MIL-STD) that will resolve most significant impediments to the interoperability of tactical microgrids and their components. TMSC Objects include:
- Safety, protection & human factors
- Electrical interconnection
- Communications, controls & cyber security
TMSC uses a consortium approach to incorporate relevant organizations such as the Department of Energy, the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST), industry & academia.
MKA is a member of the Tactical Microgrid Standards Consortium, in partnership with CERL, to incorporate best practices & inform the development and infusion of “innovative technologies to provide excellent facilities and realistic training lands” for DoD and other stakeholders that support mission readiness for installations and contingency bases – ensuring best quality with the lightest environmental impact, highest safety standards, and reduced life-cycle/maintenance costs.
