Abstract : During the period 1-21 February 1962, snow trafficability test were conducted at Camp Hale, Colo., to determine the performance characteristics of several standard military tracked vehicles and an experimental test platform (Airoll) operating in subarctic snow. The program included tests in which snow, terrain, and vehicle performance data were collected for correlation purposes. In the report, the performance of the Airoll is compared with that of the M29G weasel, since the weasel has excellent performance characteristics in soft terrains. (Author)
