Abstract
As reported in DCIEM Report No. 89-TR-09, "Development of a Canadian Forces Quick-Don Anti-Exposure Immersion Suit", Mustang Industries Ltd. developed a 3mm neoprene quick-don immersion suit to replace the quick-don anti-exposure flying coverall currently in use in the Canadian Forces (CF). It was known that the 3mm suit could not be stored in all 18 stowage positions in the CP140 aircraft; however, it was noted that the Aurora has sufficient spare storage space that stowage should not be a problem. Subsequently, DCIEM/MLSD was tasked to assess the thermal protection offered by 1mm and 2mm suits, compared to the 3mm suit, and to find suitable stowage locations in the CP140. It was found that the 1mm, 2mm and 3mm Mustang suits all provide considerably more thermal protection than the CF quick-don suit. Also, these three suits can be stored in the CP140 if appropriate modification or relocation of some stowage positions are made.
