Warrior West 18 – Speedbox Endurance-40

Monday, April 23rd, 2018

It’s hard to believe it’s been two years since we firs mentioned Speedbox, a wheeled deployment box. Created by a former SF NCO, the genesis was the need to quickly and efficiently build a pallet. The original version is now known as the Voyager-70.

At Warrior West, Speedbox launched the new Endurance-40. While the Voyager-70 was designed for the 463L pallet, the Endurance-40 fits both the 463L pallet and ISU90, which many units use.

In addition to the size change, Speedbox has also improved the ways individual Endurance-40 interlock with one another, making loads more stable on a pallet. They’ve also lengthened the pull bar so the Endurance-40 doesn’t hit your heels while you pull it.

It is 33.40”L x 19.95”W x 26.00”D and features a watertight seal with improved latches at either side of the lid with a load capacity of 250 lbs.

Aspen Water Purification Systems Used For Relief Work In Puerto Rico

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

image003

Aspen Water, Inc. is a long-standing company in the business of water purification technology, having provided portable water purification systems to the US military and various disaster relief organizations for almost 20 years. Most recently, Aspen Water supplied all the systems and bladders to two major camps in Puerto Rico, in support of the post-hurricane relief efforts. They also had a system set up in Houston after the massive flooding earlier this year.

Here’s a video of a North Carolina-based Baptist relief organization demonstrating the Aspen 3300M water filtration system for use in their relief efforts in Puerto Rico.

3300M Set-1

The 3300M is a fully-enclosed fresh water purification system, capable of processing up to 3300 gallons of water per day, up to 150 gallons per hour. It utilizes a multi-stage filtration system which, step-by-step:

1) Removes large debris
2) Small debris and harmfull organisms down to 1 micron in size
3) Man made pollutants and other contamination via a media canister
4) Disinfection via UV lamp
5) Post-filtration which removes tannins

The entire unit operates on single phase 90 to 260 volts AC at 50 or 60 hertz as well as 10 to 30 volts DC, from virtually any power source, with a maximum power consumption of less than 200 watts. An on-board battery, fully charged, lasts 2-3 hours.

Darley Safe Water Box

Monday, October 2nd, 2017

Darley Defense showed me their Safe Water Box.  The water is vacuum filled in a flexible bag, creating a barrier to oxygen and aroma, and placed in an outer board box protecting from light and air during the entire storage period, thus avoiding risk of bacterial contamination. This one-way packaging is compliant with hygienic requirements and makes packaged water affordable in a sustainable format. The bag and box are completely recyclable. Additionally, there is a tamper evident strip for food security.

The 82nd Airborne is using this during water resupply efforts during their training exercises at Fort Bragg and Fort Polk. Interstingly, they claim this is is cheaper and more effective to distribute to deployed forces than using the reusable 5 gallon jerry cans. For example, it can be configured as a CDs bundle.  The cost to the 82nd Airborne is 50% cheaper than their previous water solution. 

The Red Cross and FEMA are deploying this technology to hurricane stricken areas. They have 26 pallets of water going Puerto Rico this week. The Red Cross likes this bag in box packaging because one box can be given to a family and it can be easily utilized for drinking, cooking, hygiene. This is also significant because the long-term environmental footprint is substantially less compared to bottled water.
