The Government is performing market research to determine which organizations, companies, and academic institutions are researching or developing technology to extract water from the atmosphere. Based on the need for water for multiple purposes by all branches of the U.S. Military, as well as for disaster relief and a variety of other situations, the U.S. Army DEVCOM GVSC is soliciting this search to (1) better acquaint itself with existing technology and solutions being developed, (2) optimize expertise and effectiveness, (3) share knowledge and (4) implement efficient options to enhance water production.
GVSC is focused on building an Atmospheric Water Extraction Experts Working Group to accomplish its mission. Accordingly, this RFI intends to bring defense and federal agencies, together with industry and academia, to collaborate and better understand the capabilities of available technology while improving the magnitude of future solutions. In addition, the data collected by U.S. Army DEVCOM GVSC will be shared with other branches and organizations like DARPA to inform better the broader community of what is within the realm of possibility with potential providers.
SECTION 2: Requested Information
U.S. Army DEVCOM GVSC is granted authority under the U.S. Army to leverage third-party capital, asset ownership and solicit knowledgeable resources to drive innovation for water extraction and purification
Respondents to this RFI are responsible for understanding the use and requirements of the information being solicited below. Responding to the RFI does not guarantee you a role within the Working Group, but it will be visibility of your capabilities to the U.S. Army.
