Abstract:

The study required a detailed review of the present ammunition logistics system and a visualization of the system as it would be with maximum use of containers. Natural and induced environments throughout the system were evaluated. Previous studies were reviewed and available data evaluated, including results of studies and tests of other type containers, shelters, and vehicles. User representatives of combat, combat support and combat service support organizations provided information used to assess the impact on missions at the organizational, direct support and general support levels, including supply, maintenance, surveillance, equipment changes, and safety.
