Abstract:

During Desert ShieldStorm, extreme weather conditions encountered in the desert environment caused equipment problems that raised questions regarding climatic design requirements. The common theme for these questions centered on whether or not the environments in MIL-STD-210C, Climatic Information to Determine Design and Test Requirements for Military Systems and Equipment, were extreme enough. This is in sharp contrast to past criticism that MIL-STD-210C provided climatic values that were too extreme. This article addresses both of these issues in the context of what we have learned from Desert Storm.
