Abstract : The purpose of this study is to develop performance requirement(s)/ parameters that will identify future cargo handling equipment needs and specifications that will enable the Air Force to procure an advanced state-of- the-art aircraft transporter loader. This loader of the future will be required to interface with both commercial and military air cargo systems of the present and future. The study/analysis/evaluation, presented in this report, will outline current loader and cargo handling deficiencies along with recommendations to eliminate the deficiencies and arrive at a loader capable of working all military cargo aircraft as well as appropriate commercial aircraft.
