Research Institution

The Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit (TALOS) is being developed by the United States Special Operations Command (USSCOM). Warfighters operating in hot regions while wearing encapsulating Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) will require a Compact and Quiet Microclimate Cooling System (CQ-MCS) to protect the suit operators from heat stress. RINI Technologies has developed a 1 liter sized man-portable personal cooling product that keeps a soldier"s body cool. Personal cooling technology improves physical and cognitive function, and reduces dehydration; benefits that have a positive impact on health and mental readiness, mission endurance and operational readiness. The proposed Phase II effort will focus on integrating RINI"s personal cooling technology with the TALOS suit. In the 6 month base effort RINI will test and evaluate the noise characteristics of RINI"s cooling system and deliver (3) prototype systems and (3) integration kits for the Gen 1 TALOS suit. In the Option 1 effort, RINI will target a 20% system weight reduction and 50% noise reduction and investigate using TALOS physiological data to control the CQ-MCS cooling rate. RINI will fabricate, test and deliver (3) CQ-MCS prototypes with (3) Gen 2 integration kits at the conclusion of the Option 1 effort.
