Abstract

The proposed effort is focused on developing a passive field drying system termed as DrySAF that will allow marines to dry overnight their clothing system such as boots, uniform, etc. Oceanit will develop a hybrid nanocoposite material that has the capacity to absorb water rapidly from wet clothing. In Phase I, Oceanit will focus on developing the proposed materials and demonstrate its performance through standard tests.
