Abstract
Aspen System proposes to design, develop, fabricate and test a cooling/dehumidification system for use by MOPP 4 encapsulated warfighters. The system is designed to remove humidity and moisture from the interior of the MOPP 4 ensemble while maintaining internal temperatures at below 85 degrees F. Humidity levels inside the suit will be maintained at between 10% and 50% while temperatures will remain between 70 and 85 Degrees F. Outside ambient conditions are specified at 125 degrees F dry bulb temperature. The system will be fully compatible with the MOPP 4 Mission and will not adversely affect current CONOPS doctrine. The system will be lightweight, versatile, and have multiple mounting options so that individual preferences for mounting and differing mission requirements can be accommodated with a single system. The Phase I effort will unequivocally demonstrate the performance of the system and show, through testing of a breadboard design, the full feasibility of the technology to meet the weight, volume and power consumption constraints required for the CBRNE MOPP Level 4 mission.
