Abstract : In an arctic vehicle having a heater for the passenger compartment, it is proposed to add an external heat exchanger to remove (condense) moisture from air flowing through the heater. The relatively dry air discharged from the heater into the passenger compartment is less likely to produce fogging or icing on interior surfaces of the vehicle windows. Eliminating or minimizing the fogging-icing condition improves passenger visibility. The invention has special application to military vehicles. (Author)
