Abstract:

The instructions present information on the installation and maintenance of the EAW-20 Extendible Earth Anchor System and its associated equipment. Although versatile in its many possible practicable applications, the anchor information given is tailored primarily for the Short Airfield for Tactical Support SATS application for which the anchor was initially designed. It consists of the same three primary components as the EAW-20 Earth Anchor anchor tube assembly, explosive cartridge, and grout. Each of these components has been redesigned to give the new system increased flexibility, safety, and reliability.
