    I am working on a technology transfer project out of a university that is dealing with a more efficient method of air conditioning.

    My thought was to create a genset/aircon unit that would be diesel powered and come on the same skid for easy set up.

    How do they currently keep vital buildings cool in the field say...field hospitals, communications centers, computer equipment?

    A homerun for me is if any of you know the manufacturer of such equipment for the military or various branches.

    thanks for the reply. i have been doing a lot of research this morning via the journals and databases. i have come up with a pretty complete list of military suppliers of portable a/c

    i am going to post the list here and see if any of you have had to service these units, or worse had them fail.

    We have one set in our unit that is a AC/generator setup. It's specifically designed for tent use. So yes, someone has already come up with your idea a long time ago.

    i know the idea is well developed, this would utilize new technology in a/c thus differentiating it from what is currently available.
