Abstract : The development of a packaged Temporary Polar Camp is presented. This camp is designed for polar stations with an expected life of one to five years. It consists of a 50-man size camp expandable in 50-man increments to a 200-man camp. The 28-foot-wide by 56-foot-long by 10foot-high Modified T-5 Barracks described in this report was used as the basic structure in the temporary polar camp design. With one exception, the partitions, the equipment and furnishings used to outfit this building as a 10-man living quarters are essentially the same as those used in the camp design. The air conditioning system was scaled down to a single building size. This was necessary as each two buildings in the camp were joined by a utility core to form a duplex. The building and its outfitting is being shipped to Hallett Station, Antarctica, during Deep Freeze 64 for technical evaluation under polar conditions. It will be erected, outfitted and maintained by the station personnel. This technical note has been developed as a guide for erecting the building and installing and operating the equipment.
