U.S. Military Places Order for MSR MIOX Purifiers to Destroy Pathogens in Drinking Water

September 17, 2003

For reconnaissance Marines, special operations forces, and other soldiers behind enemy lines in hotspots around the world, the ability to scoop water from a water source and then treat it in a safe location can mean the difference between life and death.


Mountain Safety Research (MSR), a developer of essential gear for challenging environments, today announced that the Office of Naval Research (ONR) has placed an order for 1,000 MSR MIOX Purifiers for the U.S. Marines.


This purchase by the ONR will join that of the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), which has received an order for an additional 7,000 purifiers to ensure that U.S. troops have the most cutting-edge portable water purification technology available.
