Abstract:

A check test of the Mast AB-952 was conducted by the ArctiC Test Center under arctic winter conditions at Ft. Greely, AK, from 30 Oct 73 to 21 Mar 74. Functional testing was conducted in temperatures ranging from -5 F to - 51 F. Preoperational inspection, personnel training, functional adequacy, maintenance evaluation, safety, human factors, and value engineering subtests were conducted. The purpose of the test was to determine if the previously reported deficiency and shortcoming had been corrected and to insure no new deficiencies had been introduced by the mofications. It was concluded that the Mast AB-952 functioned as required down to -51F and that the deficiency and shortcoming had been eliminated. Author
