Abstract:

The U.S. Army Defense Ammunition Center and School USADACS, Evaluation Division SMCAC-DEV, has been tasked to test the possibility of stacking demolition charges in M2A1 cans in configurations of two or more high on a pallet. Under project no. FSA-146-75, the Storage and Outloading Division SMCAC-DEO modified MIL-STD-1322-806 for M2A1 cans in configurations of two-and three-high on a pallet. The methods and results of MIL-STD-1660 testing and APE 1958 leak testing of the unitization procedure described in modified MIL-STD-1322-806 are contained within this report. As a result of these tests, it was found that the referenced procedure did not satisfactorily project the M2A1 containers in the unitized load. Keywords Packaging Unitization Pallets Ammunition.
