During this period, the fabrication of the loom and auxiliary equipment was completed, the acceptance test conducted and the loom was erected for the performance weaving trials. The aforementioned efforts are directed toward the development of a loom capable of producing lowdensity AIRMAT in both flat and contoured configurations with a maximum width of 20 feet and a maximum depth of 8 feet.
