MICROCLIMATE COOLING SYSTEMS: A SHIPBOARD EVALUATION OF COMMERCIAL MODELS

The Navy Clothing and Textile Research Facility evaluated the feasibility of using commercial microclimate cooling systems (MCS) in the high-heat areas aboard Navy ships. Three liquid-cooled and two air-cooled MCSs were tested. The evaluation consisted of having the test subjects wear the MCSs during the performance of their normal duties and collecting physiological, subjective, and logistical data. The report presents and analyzes the results of the evaluation and makes recommendations for future procurement of MCSs by the Navy.
