ARMY NATICK SOLDIER RESEARCH DEVELOPMENT AND ENGINEERING CENTER MA NATICK United States
The U.S. Army Natick Soldier Research Development and Engineering Center NSRDEC collected data on technologies related to the objectives of SustainabilityLogistics-Basing Science and Technology Objective-Demonstration SLB-STO-D at the Base Camp Integration Laboratory BCIL, Fort Devens, MA. The goal of the SLB-STO-D is to demonstrate emerging materiel solution technologies and associated non-materiel solutions that can reduce the need for fuel resupply by 25 , for water resupply by 75 , and for waste removal by 50 , while maintaining or improving the quality of life at expeditionary base camps. The SLB-STO-D is using modeling and simulation, closely integrated with field demonstrations, to show fuel, water, and waste savings attributed to these technologies. Technologies demonstrated at the BCIL include Containerized Ice Making Technology CIMT, Water Demand Reduction Technologies for Forward Operating Base Organizational Equipment WDR, Self-Sustaining Living Module SLiM, Minimized Logistics Habitat Unit MILHUT, Nanoparticle-Polymer Composite for Soldier Power and Energy NPC, Gray Water Reuse Forward OsmosisReverse Osmosis GWR-FORO, Tactical Vehicle-to-GridVehicle-to-Vehicle Power Demonstration System V2GV2V, Self-Powered Waste Water Treatment WWT-D2, Water Quality Monitoring Pathogen Monitor WQM-PM, HMMWV-Towable Load Following 100kW Power Unit T100, Self-Powered Solar Water Heater SPSWH, Energy Informed Operations-Central EIO-C. This Technical Report documents the objectives, technologies, methods, and results of the Demonstration 2 at the BCIL.
