Abstract:

An extensive testing program verified that a multipurpose silicone cup was suited for use under all climatic conditions and with all heat sources which would be used by the US Army personnel. The cup is lightweight, compact, easy to clean, collapsible, strong, comfortable to hand and lips and is almost indestructible under normal use. It is a very good insulator, keeping hot food hot, or cold drinks cold. It may be used with any conventional stove, placed directly over coals or on coals, hung over an open fire, etc., for cooking or warming liquids or rations. If properly presented to Army personnel, this cup should prove to be a valuable aid to troops while under field conditions.
