Abstract [en]

This work is about a new product concept that can warm up persons in an outside hiking environment where you do not have access to electricity in abundance. As a secondary objective for this product it should minimize or prevent thermal signature when used. The product should be small enough to be stored in the backpack of the soldier or the hiker. The interface and functions of the product should be simple enough to be operated in the dark by everyone no matter what condition they are in.This work is done with guidance from The Swedish armed forces. The Swedish armed forces are the major authority in Sweden with over 13000 employees all around Sweden, most of them working and sleeping outside and in need of heat gear. Since the authority’s objective is unique due to their ability to use armed combat they often do not want to be spotted by their enemy.The basic goal of this work is to provide a concept design on how a product like this would look and operate.The markets are both the civilian hiking community and the military authorities.Many product development tools will be used to ensure that the finished product meet the objectives and goals defined.The finished product will be presented in CAD-models, drawings and a presentation.The finished product consists of a Sodium acetate pad inside a heat-insulating polyester container. The product is used on the inside of the thigh and is secured with Velcro tape.
