In 1996, DCIEM initiated a preliminary study to explore the feasibility of developing a low-cost automated system capable of accurately measuring and sizing individuals. The purpose of this system is to help make the distribution of clothing and equipment more cost-effective within the CF. The development of the Intelligent Clothing and Equipment Sizing System (ICESS) has undergone three 3 phases. The first phase was an exploratory development phase focused on hardware, software architecture, and system configuration. The second phase focused on the anthropometric aspects of the systems, that is on how accurate the measurements were. In that phase, both expert anthropometrists and ICESS measdured 95 females and 254 males. The third phase concentrated on the clothing sizing aspects of ICESS and the testing of traditional and non-traditional means of predicting clothing sizes from anthropometric data. This phase culminated with an assessment of the system's performance and provided the proof of concept data required to pursue implementation in the CF. The paper summarizes work been done to date on all the three development phases. Suggestions as to its enventual implementation have also been presented.
