Abstract : The design of most military equipment must reflect the potential for combat almost anywhere in the world. Climatic presentations for this purpose have been developed for the recently completed Military Standard 210C (MIL-STD-210C), 'Climatic Information to Determine Design and Test Requirements for Military Systems and Equipment'. This document contains data for many meteorological elements and combinations encompassing the worldwide surface environment, regional surface environments including the maritime environment, and the worldwide air environment up to 80 km. This paper addresses the development and interpretation of these climatic presentations and provides guidance on how they should be used to establish design and test requirements.
