Abstract
This program is to develop a compact, portable refrigeration and heating system for the Marines that interfaces with existing gear, including a MOPP suit worn under full battle dress. This system will effectively cool the user in the most demanding high-temperature environments while alternately acting as a heating system for both cold-weather operations and to prevent hypothermia (a particularly life-threatening condition for wounded individuals). The system safely operates on refined fuel-oils including JP-8 and Diesel to drive the refrigeration system. Fuel is a very compact energy source, and as such, only small amounts of it will be needed (approximately 1 oz./hour) for extended missions. Particular attention will be paid to user safety in this system.
