A kit and methodology for improved severe cold environment performance of the Mobile Over Snow Transport MOST System was developed using off-the-shelf itmes. Together with a literature search and laboratory tests in a cold room of temperatures down to -50 deg F, a kit and techniques were developed for cold starting capability. A discussion of several suggestions for preparations of components on the MOST vehicle prior to conducting a mission in severe cold environments is also presented.
