EnWave Sells 10kW REV Machinery to the United States Army Natick Soldier Research,
Development and Engineering Center to Accelerate Nutrient Rich Field Ration Product Development
Vancouver, B.C., July 30, 2018
EnWave Corporation (TSX-V:ENW | FSE:E4U) (�EnWave�, or the "Company") announced today that it has signed a Purchase Requisition (the "Agreement") with the United States Army Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center (�NSRDEC�) to supply a 10kW Radiant Energy Vacuum (�REV) machine for research and development purposes. The acquisition of the 10kW REV machine by NSRDEC aims to facilitate an accelerated path to improved Close Combat Assault Ration deployment.
Dr. Tom Yang has been leading the project on behalf of NSRDEC and recently presented a scientific poster at the Institute of Food Technologists (�IFT�) Food Expo in Chicago on the 17th of July. The NSRDEC also displayed a series of REV-dried Close Combat Assault Rations at the IFT Food Expo where featured rations including shelf-stable mini-quiches, high-protein crunchy cheese snacks, a Korean BBQ bar, a chewy banana bar, and cheese cake bites were showcased.
After a successful presentation at the Pentagon in May 2018 and confirmed demand for REV dried rations, the NSRDEC has fast tracked the research and development necessary for implementation with close combat warfighters. An additional presentation to NASA will take place in September 2018. This project has been under development for the past year with trials previously being completed at EnWave�s pilot plant facility located in Vancouver, Canada.
EnWave and the NSRDEC are currently looking to collaborate with potential vendors to manufacture and supply REV-dried nutrient rich field rations moving forward. Any interested parties are encouraged to contact EnWave Corporation at email@example.com.
