Proposal Title: Improved Vapor Compression Personal Cooling
Topic Number: H-SB04.2-006
Phase: Phase II
Topic Title: Improved and Innovative Cooling Garments for Emergency Responders
Organization: Aspen Systems, Inc.
Address: 24 St. Martin Drive

Abstract: Aspen Systems proposes to develop a unique state of the art miniature vapor compression cooling system for use by emergency first responders. The program is structured to include investigation and research into realistic user needs as part of the product definition activities. Aspen has established relationships with representatives from the various user groups within the first responder communities. Through collaboration with these users we plan to clearly define the user requirements and translate them into engineering of an optimized cooling solution. We will build upon the success of the Phase I program and address issues in the prototype developed in that effort. The final output of this Phase II program will be a personal cooling solution optimized for the first responder and ready for transfer to production.
