The "Objective Force Warrior," the future of the United States Army, will revolutionize the military. To achieve this, many different pieces of an intricate puzzle must be analyzed. Prepared for the U.S. Soldier Center at Natick Labs, the goal of this project was to determine the thermal response of exposed skin and the effects due to change in temperature and environmental conditions using a thermal imager. The results will be used for camouflage and micro-climate systems research of the OFW.
