Abstract
In our Phase II project Oceanit will further develop the proof of concept LCG and associated high thermal conductivity tubing into fully functional prototypes. These prototypes will be tested using a human model, thermal manikin (TM) and field testing by AFSOC personnel. Our approach provides a fundamental improvement, increasing human-machine coupling, with far reaching benefits in efficiency. This increased efficiency will allow the cooling systems developed to have significant reductions in weight. The resulting systems will be the first in new generation of superior cooling systems. The products being developed are not dependent on specific cooling technologies and benefits any personal liquid cooling system. The technology developed has broad appeal across the DOD and benefits mounted/tethered systems as well as dismounted systems.
