This paper presents the results of a Phase III SBIR project that aims to produce a lightweight, evaporative beverage chiller. Soldiers equipped with this Individual Cooling Element ICE will be able to cool their beverages by at least 11 deg C 20 deg F in hot, arid environments where relief from heat stress is critical. Testing and analysis showed that it was feasible to meet performance goals for high cooling power, light weight, reusability and safety.
