Air-cushion vehicles in the Canadian north: R42-3/1965-3E-PDF

"During the past eighteen months air-cushion vehicles have been demonstrated over a variety of terrain : salt marshes, the sands of the North African desert, the ice floes of the Baltic in February, and the snow on the Greenland ice cap. Such versatility in what was originally conceived of as only an over-water vehicle leads to speculation on their suitability as a means of transport in the Canadian North. This report surveys existing sources of information to bring together as much material as possible which bears on this matter."--p. I.
