Reproduction of a paper presented at the 57th Air Force/Industry Conference, March 1967, sponsored by the Deputy Inspector General for Inspection and Safety, USAF, Norton AFB, California.

However, the Air Force has largely failed to generate requirements for new methods of operation that would exploit unique environmental factors in cold regions. 10 pp. Ref.
