The Civil Engineering Laboratory CEL investigated the operating characteristics of air bearing devices to establish whether they can be profitably incorporated into the Marine Corps logistics system. Representative air bearing devices were experimented with over a variety of surfaces. From the tests it was concluded that virtually any surface not already suitable for air bearing operation can be made so without difficulty. However, bearing devices cannot operate in rough terrain.
