Due to the reduced atmospheric pressure encountered at high altitudes, the current Army cook stove does not function well. This task was initiated to design and develop a collapsible pressure cooker for use by troops operating at high altitudes. The collapsible cooking pot is fabricated from a silicone rubber coated fiberglass material and has an aluminum bottom and lid. The lid incorporates a breech lock type closure, pressure regulator, folding handle and safety valve. Size, weight-capacity and safety factor were prime considerations in the design of this pressure cooker.
