Roving Blue recently participated in the US Army’s Joint Warfighting Assessment in Hohenfels, Germany from April 30-May 10th. The purpose of these assessments are to field test emerging technologies and improve equipment in the soldiers’ hands, year over year, thus ensuring greater soldier survivability and efficiency in the field.
Amidst other technologies, Roving Blue was one of four water purification companies selected to participate in the exercises, which take two years of intense planning to execute. CEO Marianna “Yana” DeMyer and CFO James Gilmet attended the event to personally demonstrate the capabilities of the latest prototype water purification system, Roving Blue MVP-TK™ unit, an ozone-based small water purifier designed to both hydrate troops in mobile vehicles, while simultaneously providing a way to keep produced water pure via an ozone-circulation system called the Tank-Keeper™. This technology represents the latest advances in ozone generation in a tiny (under 25 lbs) system capable of producing the equivalent of a water bottle per minute (.5L) from freshwater surfaces.
During the field exercises the soldiers measured output and evaluated the unit on size, weight and power consumption. Roving Blue was by far the smallest, lightest and most efficient water system to participate.
