THE NUMBER OF PERSONNEL VULNERABLE TO THESE HAZARDS IS ALREADY QUITE LARGE AND IS STEADILY INCREASING AS MORE EMPHASIS IS PLACED ON PROTECTIVEEQUIPMENT AND THE ABILITY TO OPERATE UNDER SEVERE CONDITIONS. THE GOAL OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP A PERSONAL COOLING VEST THAT CAN FUNCTION WITHOUT AN EXTERNAL ENERGY SOURCE. THE DEVELOPMENT SYSTEM MUST BE LOW COST, LIGHTWEIGHT, MECHANICALLY SIMPLE, RELIABLE, AND QUITE.
