Cold Temperature and Arctic Protection System
The US Army Natick Soldier Research, Development, and Engineering Center (NSRDEC) in collaboration with the Product Manager for Soldier Clothing and Individual Equipment (PdM-SCIE), and the Maneuver Center of Excellence (MCoE) have launched a developmental program for a Cold Temperature and Arctic Protective System (CTAPS). The intent of CTAPS is to assess the currently fielded and commercial cold weather protective footwear, handwear, and clothing to identify capability areas of interest and inform acquisition requirements to develop a novel and innovative cold weather ensemble solution. It will be the next progression in cold weather protection.
