Protective Suit Environmental Control System for CBRN, Hazardous and Emergency Responder Applications (PSECS)
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Current microclimate system technology is not capable of meeting the Navy's requirements for cooling capacity, volume, weight, or dehumidification. For these systems to be successful, they must only require resources that are readily available and must not add excessive bulk to the items a soldier carries into combat. Mainstream will improve upon existing technology by designing a system that requires only standard military batteries and is volumetrically efficient, using less than 200 in3.. In addition, the proposed technology will have manage humidity inside an enclosed protective suit. At the completion of the proposed Phase I effort, Mainstream Engineering Corporation will deliver the complete design for an active, man-portable, thermal-protection system. In addition, the Phase I effort will include an experimental evaluation of the major system components. This in-depth design and experimental evaluation will enable fabrication of a full-scale prototype at the start of a Phase II contract.
