Abstract
As part of the Thrust 3id12 and a tasking from the Air Forces, DRDC Toronto required testing to be conducted on a thermal manikin to evaluate the thermal performance of land and sea survival equipment. This report details the results of using the winter dress in both dry and wet conditions using current and proposed life rafts, sleeping bags, and auxiliary components using a simulated insulating survival bed constructed of spruce boughs. These results will provide the basis for testing using human subjects using the same sea survival equipment and the same test facilities (wave tank).
