The Water Assessment and Purification Toolkit, known as WAsP, is a man-portable, adaptable and integrated reverse osmosis (RO) water purification toolkit with electro- chlorination, UV sanitation, and a remote water monitoring capability. The WAsP provides fresh, potable water at a rate of 3 gallons per hour during reverse osmosis, and instant bleach production from salt & water. This product has been designed and developed for remote aid missions, emergency rescue personnel, and the avid adventurer.
Water Assessment & Purification Toolkit (WAsP)
The system uses the ERDC GRL Geosense Team’s geo-enabled digital data collection with GEONETS and the water quality WaterDOG/IWQAS-P sensing modality. The current WAsP system was designed and conceived developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) Geospatial Research Laboratory (GRL) Geosense Team and the first prototypes were developed in collaboration with the Army’s Advanced Design and Manufacturing Facility. The CONOPS for the system would be for a Small Unit or Special Forces team to provide safe water in austere environments.
