Aspen Systems Awarded Phase I SBIR to Improve Personal Cooling Systems

Marlborough, MA – Aspen Systems, Inc. has been

awarded a Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I contract from the United States Air Force to improve the efficacy of personal cooling systems. Aspen will couple the technological breakthroughs of its lightweight personal cooling system with a modified garment that causes enhanced cooling by using vasodilation, a natural response of the human body.  By optimizing system efficiency with the body’s physiological efficiency, the designed personal cooling system will significantly reduce power consumption while improving total cooling performance.  This product could reduce size, weight, and power consumption of future personal cooling systems.
