Abstract : The purpose of the study was to evaluate the heat strain experienced by volunteer test subjects exposed to heat stress while exercising in 5 different chemical protective (OP) overgarments. The study was funded by the U.S. Army Natick Research Development and Engineering Center (Natick). The application of the study was to provide the sponsoring agency sufficient data to compare 4 prototype garments to the existing Battledress Overgarment (BDO) and to select prototypes for further development and possible procurement. This report will describe step-by-step the methods and results of a biophysical evaluation of prototype Advanced Battledress Overgarments (ABDOs).
