Abstract
Horizon 0 is a sub-project of the Counter-Improvised Explosive Device Technology Demonstration Project (C-IED TDP) being led by DRDC Valcartier with the support of DRDC Toronto. Horizon 0 looked at Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), more specifically looking at using different soft armour materials with regards to their bulk, stiffness, flexibility and weight, as well as the addition of extremity armour to the arms, legs and groin area to increase protection against IED threats. This report looks at the thermal resistance of the PPE using a thermal full body manikin, at the CORD Group Limited of Dartmouth, NS between 9-13 Mar 09.
