TIDES recently heard about an RFI (Request for Information) from the USMC, and wanted to pass on this information to any individuals and companies who might have, or be aware of, relevant technologies. Here is a short description and the link for the official documentation is below:
The USMC with the Office of Naval Research has issued an RFI (Request for Information) The Office of Naval Research in support of USMC technology requirements is interested in understanding the currently available technologies that could enhance the logistics sustainability of remote Forward Operating Bases (FOBs) engaged in combat operations. Specific areas of interest for this RFI include 1) water purification and distribution, 2) electric power generation and distribution, and 3) energy efficient structures. Technologies of interest are those that would most effectively enhance self sufficiency of a Forward Operating Base roughly the size of a Marine Corps Company (approximately 200 Marines). Information is requested in the form of brief product descriptions.
