EXFOR Soldiers conduct a non-networked assessment with the Roving Blue Small Water Purifier (Roving Blue, Inc.) and the Weatherproof WASP (Federal Resources) during AEWE 2016 at Fort Benning, GA. The Roving Blue Small Water Purifier offers a five-stage water purification process which includes dual debris screens, sediment filter, activated carbon + silver filters, and ozone generator for sanitation- producing up to 1 liter per minute of drinkable water from surface freshwater sources. The Weatherproof WASP is an expeditionary power solution that offers solar power recharging capability for multiple types of batteries including the BA2590 and conformal battery.

Words cannot express how very proud I am of these two innovators for taking an incredible risk in pursuing a much needed solution to the global clean water crisis with the development of Roving Blue. Their perseverance and accomplishments along the way, especially with the military, are nothing short of inspiring. It’s an honor to work with you and help bring a product to market that can change the world one gallon at a time, Yana DeMyer and Jim Gilmet.

No, we aren’t in the middle of a zombie apocalypse… (although our bet is that our water purification units could survive one!)
Our CEO (Yana DeMyer), our CFO (Jim Gilmet) and our esteemed military liason (Tucker Campion) are at SOCOM in Largo, FL this week. SOCOM is the Unified Combatant Command charged with overseeing the various Special Operations Component Commands of the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps of the United States Armed Forces.
According to SOCOM, these events that provide an opportunity for technology developers to interact with operational personnel to determine how their technology development efforts and ideas may support or enhance Special Operations Forces.
We are proud to have been selected to participate!
