Abstract
PETE is the acronym for the Portable Emergency Thermal Environment. Originally a one man arctic survival shelter, PETE has come to represent a new classification of arctic habitats. PETE shelters posses a unique combination of thermal and emergency characteristics such as those of thermal self-sufficiency and self-deployment. Numerous applications and potential conditions exist where a Multi-Occupant Survival Shelter (M.O.S.S.), rather than a one-man unit, would prove valuable. The MOSS project was undertaken to study the feasibility of a PETE class multi-occupant habitat, and to provide initial designs for this new class of shelters.
