The US Military Relies on Katadyn

Armed forces around the world rely on Katadyn products for safety and life-saving needs.

The U.S. military, uses Katadyn hand-held desalinators in all Navy emergency liferafts.  U.S. Air Force first aid kits include Katadyn’s Micropur purification tablets for emergency water needs.  Special Forces use Katadyn Pockets for safe drinking water in Afghanistan.   

 The following products have NSN (National Stock Numbers) and are regularly ordered by the military:

 ·         Micropur MP1 tablets Used in U.S. Air Force and Marine Corps IFAK first aid kits (replaced iodine tablets formerly used in  these kits)

 ·         Pocket FilterUsed by the U.S. Army in Iraq and Afghanistan

 ·         Optimus NovaUsed by U.S. Army and Marines because of the dual fuel feature (they can burn diesel in their vehicles and also use it in the stoves)

 ·         Survivor Hand Held DesalinatorsUsed extensively by the U.S. Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard in military life rafts
