Abstract:

The ANATE-1 Aerial Wire Dispenser Set consists of a combination of basic components which, when the parts are assembled into different configurations, furnish suitable equipment for air-laying field wire contained in MX-306AG dispensers from various Army aircraft. This equipment may be used with the U-6 airplane, OH-13, OH-23D, UH-19, CH-21, CH-34, CH-37, and the UH-1 Helicopters. The equipment consists of two metal, rectangular ducts or chutes that are sufficiently large in size to hold two 12-mile containers of Field Wire WD-1TT MX-306AG dispensers placed one on top of the other. A rear opening is provided near the bottom of the chute through which the wire is dispensed. For use with other than the OH-13 and OH-23D helicopters and the U-6 airplane, two chutes are mounted on a plate with supports to hold the chutes at the proper angle for wire payout. The double-chute mounting plate MK-480 is designed to fit, and dispense the wire through, the floor observation window of the UH-19 helicopter. In all other aircraft except the OH-13 and OH-23D helicopters and the U-6 airplane, the double plate is fastened to a mounting bracket which projects as a balcony out of the cargo door of the aircraft.
