    The United States Army's Soldier Tactical Mission System is capable of providing a dramatic change in small-unit warfare with its enhanced communications, situational awareness, and navigation capabilities. A significant drawback to this system, however, is that the very systems that provide these advantages to the soldier also demand high quantities of energy. In order to design an adequate energy delivery system to support the operation of the soldier's enhanced equipment, the problem is broken down and analyzed into three general areas: energy demand, energy management, and energy source design. The aim of this paper is to introduce the reader to each of these three general areas, thereby providing a potential catalyst for future research and exploration into the design solution of adequate energy delivery systems.
