Drinking water is one of the first things that gets compromised when there is a disaster; floods, hurricanes, or earthquakes. Now you can have peace of mind right in the palm of your hand!

Featuring the SAME advanced technology in our Roving Blue Model MVP-A, dissolved ozone gas IS the cutting edge of water purification today!

Fast-Acting: It will purify .5 L or 16 oz. of water in under one minute.

You CAN drink the water!

The O-Pen makes water safe by infusing it with tiny bubbles of ozone gas.

Approved by the FDA and the USDA for use in drinking water, ozone is more powerful than chlorine and is highly effective against bacteria, viruses, giardia, cryptosporidium, typhoid fever, coliform, dysentery, cholera, infectious jaundice, hepatitis, influenza virus, e-coli, enteric and many other dangerous microorganisms.

Ozone also removes unpleasant tastes and odors – you won’t be able to tell the difference between your glass of tap water and bottled water.

For Immediate Release:

Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN – 22 January, 2016:

Roving Blue, Inc., one of only two companies recognized out of a 34 state area, was honored by The Defense Alliance with its annual “Architect of Defense” award.

The Defense Alliance is an organization whose mission is to network and expand the defense industry job and technology base of the Upper Midwest, and promote the region’s innovative contributions to the nation’s defense.

According to Executive Director, Chip Laingen, The Company was chosen because it “Demonstrated superior tenacity in listening to and responding to military customer design inputs to improve its products, and innovative commercialization efforts.”

The honored guest and presenter of the evening was Major General Neal Loidolt, U.S. Army, Commanding General of the fabled 34th Infantry Division (the “Red Bulls”), who spoke about the U.S. Military’s role in global security, and the National Guard’s role in that ongoing mission.

More than 75 people from defense-oriented organizations attended the event which was hosted by HGA, one of the nation’s leading architectural and engineering firms.

The Defense Alliance is a regional catalyst for technology-based economic development.  It recently passed the $150 million mark in contract gains for companies assisted since 2011, when the SBA recognized and funded it as an Advanced Defense Technologies Cluster (ADT).  Learn more at the Alliance’s websites (www.defensealliance.com / www.powerfordefense.com).

Participation in the Defense Alliance is sought among groups and individuals with an interest in seeing the region’s defense contributions grow, including large and small firms, academic and R&D institutions, our elected officials, and professional military and trade organizations.  Its founder is Paul Wagner, Chairman & CEO of Minnesota Wire. manufactures a highly ruggedized, portable water filtration device for military expeditionary use, and for the commercial outdoor, and disaster preparedness and response markets.

The evening was sponsored in part by:  Polaris Defense, which has a rapidly growing defense portfolio; and Veteran Beer Company, a craft brewer that only hires Veterans and provides a substantial portion of its profits to Veteran causes.

The other awardee is Navitas Systems is an innovative battery solutions provider for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and Energy (DoE), and commercial users.  Their novel 6T lithium battery will be used in a variety of ground combat vehicles (including the new Humvee replacement called JLTV– recently awarded to Oshkosh Truck).
