Abstract:

A check test of the Power Unit PU-625 was conducted by the Arctic Test Center under arctic winter conditions at Fort Greely, AK. Operational testing was performed in temperatures ranging from 0 to -59 F. Preoperational inspection, personnel training, functional adequacy, maintenance evaluation, safety, human factor engineering, and value engineering subtests were conducted. The purpose of the test was to determine if a previously reported deficiency had been corrected and that no new deficiencies were introduced by modifications. It was concluded that the PU-625 started as required in temperatures down to -59 F and that the previous deficiency had been corrected.
