AbstractSpecial Operations forces (SOF) operate in all weather conditions. It has identified a need for a micro-cooling system that can be vehicle mounted and man-portable, as well as provide a capability to cool vehicle mounted communications and electronics equipment. To meet the needs of SOF the system must be small, lightweight, quiet, low power, and gasless. We propose a compact micro-cooling system that meets, and exceeds, these requirements. Using a patent-pending Positive Displacement Non-Pulsating Pump, our product will cool air using a patented cooling method based upon Peltier thermo-electric cooling modules. We will address all issues and provide technical documentation that supports solutions to the heat-related problems and will provide documentation in support of a material resolution. We will develop overall system design to include specifications for size, weight, power, maintenance, integration, cost and configuration. In Phase II several prototypes will be built and provided for testing and evaluation in realistic urban and rural environments to prove merit and feasibility over extended operating conditions.
