The Department of Defense (DoD) was seeking demonstrations of innovative technologies and methodologies to improve energy system cybersecurity on military installations. Demonstrations provided valid assessments of cost, technical performance and acceptability to the DoD facility management and network security communities. Demonstrations included technology transfer activities that have a feasible path to commercialization of products DoD facilities managers and network managers would adopt and implement to support the military mission on DoD facilities. The proposed solutions enabled components of building energy systems, such as chillers and lighting, to use military networks to send or receive data and control signals. Additionally or alternatively, proposed solutions enabled military installation building and energy infrastructure to automatically sense and respond to ancillary services signals, such as demand response or frequency regulation, in order to participate in ancillary services markets.
