Abstract : The Navy Clothing and Textile Research Facility (NCTRF) conducted a field evaluation to compare two life-support-suit assemblies. One assembly was a liquid-air-cooled suit that provided convective cooling; the other was a dry-ice system that used liquid-cooled underwear to provide conductive cooling. The test results indicated the dry-ice system was preferred by 74.2% of the test subjects for cooling purposes. (Author)
