Abstract:

The work performed under Phase II of this contract has resulted in the design and fabrication of a system capable of the efficient disposal of human waste from within a combat vehicle operating in an NBC environment with minimum impact to the vehicle or to the personnel operating within that vehicle. The Waste Processing Unit WPU has been demonstrated both by analysis and testing. The WPU for combat vehicle is currently undergoing further testing at Aberdeen Proving Grounds. Additionally, a modified version of the WPU was fabricated and tested to verify the feasibility of adapting the concept to marine applications. This effort has proven the feasibility of the application, and appears to have significant commercial possibilities.
