Abstract:

This report describes a procedure which, if employed, can provide the data on the properties of personnel parachute assemblies necessary for justification of an age life extension. In Part One of this report, several methods of data collection and analyses are introduced which are currently being employed by the various Services to investigate use and age life limitations of parachutes. Part One dealt primarily with a study, conducted in conjunction with the U.S. Army Natick Laboratories, seeking to justify a use life extension of U.S. Army T-10 troop-type main personnel parachutes. This report details an experimental design which should be used to provide the necessary statistical basis for establishing the degree of an age life extension as recommended in Part One.
