Abstract
Heat stress is a critical issue for United States military personnel, particularly those individuals wearing highly insulative personal protective equipment. Aspen Systems proposes to develop and produce an innovative mobile personal cooling system which is relatively small, lightweight, and unobtrusive for the dismounted soldier application. It will integrate seamlessly with the soldier ensemble. By mitigating the effects of heat stress, the high-performance system promises to minimize or eliminate core body temperature rise, significantly extend mission duration, and increase cognitive and physical performance.
