"We've done drop testing, vibration testing, flammability testing, performance testing at the Doriot Climatic Chambers, and abrasion testing, said Ben Williams, project officer, in a 2014 article. "We also linked up with Johns Hopkins University's Applied Physics Lab to conduct in-vehicle blast testing, because our customer's number one requirement was that these bags needed to be blast-proof in an [improvised explosive device] scenario."
The Army applied for and received U.S. Patent 9,265,318 on the cooler in 2016.
On June 9, 2022, the Army exclusively licensed its patent rights to Blackbridge Defense, enabling manufacturing and sales.
