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. Since World War II the Air Force's generation of requirements for cold-weather research and development has been very effective in removing cold-weather limitations on equipment and on normal methods of operation. 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.
