The TIDES Infrastructure Directory
The STAR-TIDES Infrastructure Directory identifies equipment and organizations that support the basic needs of stressed populations. Our goal is to share open-source information and inform the broader community of resources available. This is an ongoing project and we welcome your contributions to our infrastructure directory.
You must become a member to add your catalog to the directory. Specifically, we are requesting that you upload solutions that your company/organization manufactures. Add information about your product then fill in additional details in the white space. After your submission our staff, will review the content and we will contact you if clarification is needed.
Examples of Infrastructures:
|Shelter||Indigenously based systems wherever possible, cost-efficient to commercial shelters, etc.|
|Water||Solar water pasteurization, low-power filtration, reverse osmosis units.|
|Power||Solar panels, wind turbines, and micro-hydro, with integrating power controllers where applicable. Indigenous manufacturing or at least assembley is preferred.|
|Integrated combustion and Solar Cooking||Combinations of solar, combustion stoves, and retained heat.|
|Cooling/Heating||Low-wattage cooling fans, insulation, whole-systems approches to reuse heat from integrated cooking|
|Sanitation||Chemicals that neutralize harmful bacteria, but are environmentally safe.|
|Information Communication Technology||Information transport mechanisms such as portable satellite disks, microwave links, and networks; bridging equipment to link to local commuunication systems; robust, low-power computers, geospatial information systems (GIS) and related products.|
