Abstract:

Current studies aimed at simplification of the preparation of loads for delivery by airdrop have resulted in a concept for a simplified method of preparing the honeycomb cushioning system. This concept employs a small number of standard size honeycomb modules which can be used as building blocks to construct the many different sized stacks employed in current rigging procedures. Analysis and limited testing indicate that it would be feasible to use five standard size modules of honeycomb to rig practically all airdrop loads.
