An investigation was conducted to evaluate ancillary items for use with XM18 and XM19 landing mats. Traffic and field tests were conducted to obtain information for use in comparing the performance life of the ancillary items with the performance life requirement for landing mat. Various turn adapters, access adapters, starting connectors, half panels, repair panels, closure panels, edge anchors, anchor attachments, and turndown adapters were tested. Engineer design tests were conducted on matsurfaced prepared subgrades, with a rolling wheel load simulating actual aircraft operations. Author
