Supplying potable water for the Army and other DoD field operations is challenging in many environments. Water supplies may be unreliable or simply unavailable in the conventional sense of access to a stream, lake, ditch, sea or ocean. Water is anessential for troop survival and func-tional operations. It either must be found locally at the field environment or transported logisti-cally at high impact cost to operations and troop mobility. Direct extraction from unconventional water sources thatare inherently and always available as part of the ambient/background environ-ment would alleviate the problem.SARA, Inc. proposes a highly innovative method for generating potable water from air using commercial-off-the-shelf components coupled with technologies developed under US Army and Air Force funding. This method will meet the Army identified requiredfeatures for field operable water systems; modular, versatile, deployable, mobile, and expansible. A process to provide potable water has many commercial applications, both at home and abroad. Along will military applications, the system can be used to supply additional sources of water in drought stricken countries, humanitarian efforts, agricultural,and architectural uses (landscaping, golf courses, fountains, ponds).
