Research Institution
The increased emphasis on environmental and health concerns have impacted the operations of combat forces. To comply with federal regulations military equipment must be washed down or decontaminated prior to being transported back to the United States. The proposed Phase I research will demonstrate the feasibility of utilizing Octa-Aqua-Flex's patented environmental pad as the basis for a portable washdown environmental containment system for use by the Department of Defense. Advanced composite materials will be used to construct the lightweight portable environmental pad and incorporate filters and pubmps allowing water to be reused and minimize the volume of waste. Phase I research will demonstrate the strength of the composite material and pad design and the ability to design a filtration and pumping system to allow water to be recycled and provide the desired water pressure. Phase II will involve development and testing of a prototype portable washdown environmental containment system.
