Abstract : Tests were conducted to determine the suitability of the Survival Kit, OV-1 Aircraft, Cold Climate for Army use under arctic winter conditions. The Survival Kit was tested at ambient air temperatures ranging from 44 F to -46 F. The URC-10 radio w/battery was unsatisfactory on the VOICE mode after a cold- soak of 16 hours at temperatures of 14 F and below. It was concluded that, when modified to correct the deficiencies and shortcomings, and when the URC-10 radio is removed from the kit, to be carried as personal equipment, the Survival Kit, OV-1 Aircraft, Cold Climate should be suitable for use under arctic winter conditions.
