SAN DIEGO, 21 August 2006. Titan Energy Development Inc., a subsidiary of Safe Travel Care Inc., has received an order for a Sentry 5000 mobile utility system from NextEnergy.

NextEnergy is a nonprofit corporation founded to enable the commercialization of energy technologies that positively contribute to economic competitiveness, energy security, and the environment. The Sentry 5000 system will be used in a program supported by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) grant to develop mobile utility solutions to provide on-demand power anywhere in the world.

The NextEnergy purchase of the Titan Sentry 5000 was made in conjunction with the U.S. Army Tank-automotive and Armament Command/National Automotive Center as part of a DOD-sponsored project called the Advanced Mobile Microgrid Power System(AM2GPS). AM2GPS is tasked with finding solutions that will allow government agencies and other entities to efficiently deploy mobile power control and conditioning assets to any location in the world within 48 hours.

The Sentry 5000 provides up to 80 hours of self-sufficient emergency power generation (dependent on load utilization) before refueling. It allows for mobile deployment and supports emergency power generation, water purification, satellite voice and data communication, emergency area lighting, and space conditioning (heat or cooling), as well as offers 50kW+ additional power capacity.

The AM2GPS program seeks to harness power from conventional generating sources, as well as wind, solar photovoltaics, vehicles with exportable power capabilities, fuel cells, and other sources, for distribution across a select geographic area. In the wake of a natural disaster, homeland security incident, or military operations, it enables essential human services requiring power, including distilling and purifying water culled from any source.
