Research Institution

Triton Systems, Inc. will conduct a feasibility study to determine the commercial viability of our sterile water device. Non-defense markets will be tapped that display a clear need for the proposed product. Additionally, we will determine the product-market fit between the device and Air Force (AF) end-users. We will create a plan to define a trial for AF customers to test the proposed product in the Phase II stage of the project. The military need for a portable sterile water for injection/irrigation (SWFI/SWFIr) system in the field is significant. Up to 24% of solider deaths could be prevented if appropriate blood products were available in far-forward locations. Currently, medics need to carry, maintain, and be resupplied with liquid-based medications and materials that are heavy, expensive to transport, perishable, and, in some cases, require refrigeration, such as fresh frozen human plasma and other blood components. Our deployable system that can generate SWFI/SWFIr from various potable water sources would allow blood and other medical products to be transported in a freeze-dried state and rehydrated on site. It is battery-powered, small, lightweight, and quickly dispenses sterile water. This technology will be developed to meet AF end-user requirements.
