ARMY NATICK SOLDIER RESEARCH DEVELOPMENT AND ENGINEERING CENTER MA NATICK United States
Materiel solutions from industry, academia, and other military partners were sought. This document records efforts to seek materiel solutions from industry and academia. The specific findings of the aforementioned efforts were a The Request for Information RFI yielded only 24 submissions, 4 of which were applicable to the goals and objectives of the SLB-STO-D. The small number of relevant technology solutions was due to the criteria developed by the Technology Maturation and Integration Team TMIT, which was based on a database of current technologies, gaps in basecamp needs, and future predictions of fuel, water, and waste reduction b Due to the small number of recommended technologies for assessment and demonstration, SLB-STO-D leadership and panel members decided that a physical, consolidated event would not take place c Site visits took place for two of the candidate technologies, T-SERIES by ZeroBase and Sol-Char by the University of Colorado, within the planned timeframe of the industry demonstration. The other two demonstrations did not take place, because the systems were not available for demosite visits during the planned timeframe within the SLB-STO-D master plan d The T-Series by Zero-Base appears to be the most mature of all the industry technologies investigated in this report based on the site visit conducted. It should be further investigated to obtain data that could be analyzed by the Modeling, Simulations and Analysis Team of the SLB-STO-D. Sol-Char is early on in the developmental cycle and needs to further matured to be a viable candidate for use in base camps.
