Abstract:

An improved prototype model of a waterproof submarine deck exposure suit was tested under actual operating conditions aboard a conventional-type submarine, not a nuclear powered submarine, to determine whether it is sufficiently improved to recommend its adoption as a replacement for the present standard garment. It was concluded that in comparison with the standard wetcold weather suit now supplied to the Fleet, the experimental submarine deck exposure suit is not sufficiently improved to warrant its being recommended as a replacement.
