Abstract : The Army Aircraft Hot Climate Type 2 and Overwater Type 3 Survival Kits were tested for suitability in their present configuration because individual survival is dependent upon availability of 2 containers of either kit, and inadequacies exist in both kits as to type and quantities of survival items. The test survival kits when reconfigured as recommended would be suitable for use in Army aircraft except transport aircraft and those equipped with ejection seats. (Author)
