Water Assessment and Purification (WAsP)The U.S. Army Geospatial Research Laboratory has developed and seeks to license a patent-pending, man-portable system for water purification with electro-chlorination, UV sanitation, and remote water monitoring capabilities

WAsP is a portable toolkit for water assessment and purification, weighing in at 44 lbs. Point-of-use water filtration in remote areas and while on the move improves the supply chain, reduces costs, and ensures water quality.

WAsP provides:

  • Reverse osmosis water purification (1-3 Gal/Hr for standing water with a freshwater source)
  • On-the-fly electro-chlorinator bleach production from salt and water
  • In-line assessment of physical water quality parameters (as defined by TB Med 577)
  • Onboard communications and mesh network for data logging and relay
  • Six to seven hours of operations on a BB-2590 battery
