This Test Operations Procedure TOP provides specific and general procedures for testing individual Soldier equipment in a cold regions environment. The common characteristics of a cold region are cold temperatures, strong seasonality with distinct changes in insolation solar radiation energy, frozen atmospheric moisture, frozen ground, and freezethaw of water. These characteristics have moderate to high-risk impacts on the survivability of the individual Soldier and are best addressed through natural environmental testing. Methods for testing individual Soldier equipment for the effect of these cold-regions characteristics are the primary goal of this TOP.
