Abstract: The use of photovoltaic (PV) technology for the harvesting of renewable energy is a reality and is widely employed today. However this is mainly focused towards house and industry energy harvesting. Recent development in thin and flexible materials mean that photovoltaic technology can be integrated into wearable computing and expanded to other commercial as well as defence applications. This paper presents work under the Solar Soldier project that aims to assess the incorporation of flexible PV technology on the modern infantry soldier through the modelling and simulation of virtual military scenarios. The scenarios consist of various military operational terrains, various lighting conditions as well as motions of the virtual infantry soldier. The scenarios are simulated in a systematic way and for numerous global positions of military interest. The results of these simulations are then organised and presented in a manner leading to the assessment of the power generation potential pe r scenario and investigation of the optimum integration areas of flexible PV devices on the infantryman.
