Abstract : The report describes the final design of the PP-6075(XE-2)/U Thermoelectric Power Source, which is comprised of five major functional subsystems: thermoelectric converter, liquid fuel burner, electronic circuitry, fuel system, and cooling system. Three engineering test models were built and evaluated through an extensive series of performance tests, electromagnetic interference tests, and environmental service tests which are summarized in the report. This activity was followed by the assembly of twelve engineering development models, three of which underwent a reliability test program. The basic objectives of the program were achieved; the PP-6075( )/U Thermoelectric Power Source was designed and qualified in accordance with a broad set of military specifications and standards.
