Abstract
The feasibility study assesses various long-lived self-contained 30 watt power supplies for an Arctic Radio Repeater system. The study involves a review of the state-of-the-art, availability and cost of five candidate systems; batteries, fuel cells, radioisotope thermoelectric generators, fueled thermoelectric generators and windmill-battery systems. Also included in the study are standby reserve units which could be any of the above five candidates. Reliability and service and maintenance requirements are considered, as the requirements call for reliable one year unattended operation and servicing by light helicopter on a single annual flight for all sites.
