The summer 1969 and spring 1970 Manhattan Arctic Tests to obtain experience with the operation of a large commercial vessel in ice are described with emphasis on support to the test and implications for the future. Technical support included training of the Manhattan's senior officers, sea ice reconnaissance, and icebreaker services. Reasons are given for the conclusion that operational feasibility is reasonably well established, but economic feasibility is far from being determined.
