UMD students compete to keep service members cool
Tuesday, April 14, 2015
An equipment prototype that would cool down U.S. troops in hot weather, created by University of Minnesota Duluth students, will get a test run by military officials today in Boston.
The prototype, called Special Operations Heat Regulation or “SOHR,” has been a year in the making as part of the U.S. Air Force Research Lab’s Student Challenge, meant to tap into engineering students’ solutions to real-world military equipment problems.
UMD has competed for several years in the challenge against other universities from across the United States and comes close to winning every year, said Bill Pedersen, the lead professor on the project.
