Phase-change Urgent Living Specimen Enclosure (PULSE)
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
Paragon"s proposed PULSE technology builds upon existing vacuum insulated panel (VIP), vacuum dewar, phase change, and chemical heating and cooling technologies to provide a more robust transportation container with the potential for extended life and operability over existing systems. PULSE will utilize innovative new techniques to manufacture continuous, three-dimensional vacuum insulated containers, including cylinders, with robust walls, without resorting to pinches or other methodologies that increase heat conduction. Furthermore these new geometries will significantly reduce edge effects leading to higher overall performance. The PULSE innovative insulated containers will also provide obvious and immediate feedback if they are compromised. Paragon will apply our thermal expertise to address the issue of more robust PCM materials and containers to address life limitations and unreliability being experienced by the DoD. Paragon will also create highly adaptable thermal control systems that require no power and allows a set-point temperature to be maintained without any container preconditioning or prior knowledge of the operational environment. Through these advancements, Paragon"s PULSE system will provide greater certainty to the DoD that critical medical supplies arrive as intended even in uncertain external environments.
