Miniature Deployable Assistance System – MiDAS™

Solar Powered Water Purification Systems
MiDAS - Miniature Deployable Assistance System
MiDAS Relief

MiDAS™ is an affordable, self-contained, modular, hybrid-powered system providing portable water purification, communications and situational awareness capabilities. It provides services to small military teams or local responders in support of a wide variety of missions including humanitarian assistance/disaster relief (HA/DR) and operations in remote areas.

MiDAS™ components can be used separately or as part of a system-of-systems designed to be deployed quickly to austere environments where essential services are not immediately available.

Key features include:

  • Water filtration and purification equipment with the capability to produce potable water from freshwater, brackish water and seawater.
  • Reliable, hybrid power for primary MiDAS services (water purification and communications) capable of operating independently or as an integrated kit.
  • Interoperable global communications (voice, text and email) in austere or degraded environments; independent of existing
    communications infrastructure.
  • Access to commercial imagery and locational data on aid personnel, images and voice tracks for time-critical situational awareness and mission planning.
  • Quality assurance and testing prior to shipment
  • Information sharing on threats and/or status (e.g., recovery efforts, local populace, services, environment and infrastructure).
  • The Joint Modular Intermodal Container is a U.S. Military approved light-weight container that provides easy access to container contents, uniform in size, easy to transfer and collapses to reduce space requirements when not in use.
  • Each component is contained within transportable cases and may be transported in a civilian Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) or military type HUMVEE. Modularity of the system enables only the components required for the mission to be removed from the container.
