Abstract
The report describes work undertaken for the Defence Research Board, Ottawa, in the development of a small mobile Arctic shelter. The vehicle has been designed to support the activities of two men on patrol in the Arctic regions for up to five days. As well as providing sufficient food and fuel, and facilities for sleeping and personal hygiene, the vehicle carries all the equipment necessary for patrol, navigation and minor maintenance. In case of vehicle failure, emergency Arctic supplies are also provided. The report discusses the rationale behind particular aspects of the shelter design while the mock-up better demonstrates the details. Included are discussions concerning the driving cab, seating arrangements, bunks, stowage, and heating and cooking equipment.
