Demonstration of a Portable Water Purification Device for the USMC
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
A lightweight portable water purification device has been long sought by the US military. Mainstream has been hard at developing such a lightweight purification device since 1989, and has finally developed the configuration for a small portable device that will meet or exceed all the performance requirements of this USMC solicitation. This device, which uses a unique and patent-pending configuration, has already been designed by Mainstream and is discussed in this proposal. At 24 ounces dry-weight, this device can produce 1.5 liters of purified water in as little as 45 seconds. Cleaning is simple and straightforward. Phase I includes the fabrication and demonstration testing of this lightweight water purification device, which includes a 1.5 liter water storage capacity. Mainstream has been developing this technology for many years and we will continue to put our own Internal Research and Development funds into this project, because of the tremendous commercial potential for this technology.
Phase I will allow a full demonstration of the concept's feasibility, and provide performance comparisons to alternative approaches. The Phase II effort will address DoD field testing, and prototype refinements for an actual USMC application.
