  • Assist in the development of improved materials in clothing and individual equipment for the protection of the individual Soldier
  • Evaluate and analyze the thermal processes and combustion by-products of fuel burning equipment (i.e., tent heaters, water heaters, kitchen burners, etc.) to provide optimum performance of equipment to improve the Warfighter's quality of life.
