Environmental tests are used to verify if the materiel can withstand harsh environments. In order to conduct effective environmental tests, it is important to simulate proper environment condition that the materiel may endure during its life-cycle. The environmental test process is very important for military products since materiel are more likely to be exposed to extreme environments than commercial products. In the U.S., global climate data are collected and utilized to determine the environmental criteria for the materiel products. ROK’s military products are mostly operated in the Korean Peninsula. Thus, a study on climate data of the Korean Peninsula is necessary. In this paper, the extremes of low temperature and FOO of high altitude low temperature are analyzed. The analysis showed that the world’s extreme low temperature and it of Korea were significantly different below the altitude of 4km. Especially, the difference between those at 1km altitude was -29.9℃. These results can be used as the criteria of environmental test for aircraft materiel which is external mounts and releases.
