dc.description.abstractThis study constitutes a portion of the Mobility Environmental Research Study (MERS), sponsored. by the Office, Secretary of Defense, Advanced. Research Projects Agency (ARPA), Directorate of Remote Area Conflict, for which the U. S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES) is the prime contractor, and tbe U. S. Army Materiel Command. (AMC) is the service agent. The broad. mission of Project MERS is to determine the effects of the various features of the physical environment on the performance of cross-country ground. contact vehicles and to provide therefrom d.ata which can be used. to improve both the design and. employment of such vehicles. A condition of the project is that the data be interpretable in terms of vehicle requirements for Southeast Asia. The funds employed for this study were allocated. to WES by AMC under DA Project No. l-V-0-25001-A-131 and by ARPA under ARPA Order No. 400. This report was prepared. by Mr. Ed.ward. E. Garrett from data and illustrations derived from contract reports prepared. by Florida State University (FSU) and. unpublished data collected. by the MERS Thailand Detachment and WES field. teams in Thailand. All phases of this study were under the general supervision of Messrs. W. G. Shockley, A. A. Rula, and W. E. Grabau, Mobility and Environmental Division, WES. Directors of the WES during the conduct of this study and preparation of this report were Col. Alex G. Sutton, Jr., CE, and. Col. John R. Oswalt, Jr., CE. Mr. J. B. Tiffany was Technical Director.en_US
