Abstract:

The objective of this program was the modification or redesign of XM56 mine and fuze piece parts, subassemblies, and assemblies to minimize production costs, eliminate costly production processes, and to establish acceptance and inspection criteria to assure end item quality and reliability. Modifiedredesigned XM56 mine and fuze assemblies built during this program as deliverable hardware were submitted for Government acceptance testing. The results of this testing are not reported herein. The overall cost of the XM56 mine and fuze assemblies modifiedredesigned by the contractor was projected as approximately 50 percent of the R and D version on the basis of a second year production rate of 30,000 units per month.
