Abstract:

The Air Force Packaging Evaluation Agency provides the Department of the Air Force with a packaging engineering capability that is available to all major commands and to certain other federal agencies. To assure dynamic engineering and technical progress in packaging, the AFPEA investigates, designs, develops, tests, and evaluates containers, materials, methods, and techniques. It provides integrated logistics support planning for acquisition programs and assistance to program managers for packaging and transportability requirements. This report provides actions, status, and future efforts of the agency in accordance with the requirements of AFR 71-2. During 1982, the agency had 119 new projects, many of which were related to increased emphasis on war readiness and new systems development. While many efforts are long term, extended over 2 to 5 years, the agency was able to complete 82 projects. The progress made on the program for cargo mobility containers was excellent in that design and initial operational tests were completed and production started in May 1982. Initial production of 600 sets is expected to be completed in early 1983.
