Pagination or Media Count:
The report covers Phase 2 of a program to develop a supplementary item of protective footwear to be used in conjunction with a previously developed protective combat boot. It was directed toward fabrication of test prototypes for blast evaluation. The supplementary devices were of two types, Concept A and Concept B, both using an identical solid aluminum shank. Concept B incorporated a system of reinforcement for the upper portion of the foot. A discussion of preliminary prooftesting considerations is presented. This discussion includes the recommendation of test personnel, the quantity of tests, and the protective footwear to be used during tests.
