SURVIVAL KITS

The Army has several basic survival kits, primarily for issue to aviators. There are kits for cold climates, hot climates, and overwater. There is also an individual survival kit with general packet and medical packet. The cold climate, hot climate, and overwater kits are in canvas carrying bags. These kits are normally stowed in the helicopter's cargo/passenger area.
An aviator's survival vest (SRU-21P), worn by helicopter crews, also contains survival items.
U.S. Army aviators flying fixed-wing aircraft equipped with ejection seats use the SRFU-31/P survival vest. The individual survival kits are stowed in the seat pan. Like all other kits, the rigid seat survival kit (RSSK) used depends on the environment.
Items contained in the kits may be ordered separately through supply channels. All survival kits and vests are CTA 50-900 items and can be ordered by authorized units.
