Challenge 3: Alternative Sources of Water:

Develop a technology that provides an Alternative Source of Water that reduces demand for water through point-of-need water production, reuse, or enhanced efficiencies.

The potential benefits of this capability may include improved ability to meet demand at the point of need, reduced convoy requirements, reduced water logistics footprint and increased endurance for widely dispersed, expeditionary forces.

Potential technology solution candidates include:

(1) Water from Air (Trailer mounted and vehicle mounted systems)
(2) Grey Water Reuse
(3) Waste Water Treatment
(4) Man-Portable Water Purifier
(5) Water Quality Monitoring
