Abstract:

The U.S. Army Defense Ammunition Center and School USA DACS, Evaluation Division SMCAC-DEV, has been tasked by the U.S. Army Armament, Munitions and Chemical Command, SMCAR-AEP, Picatinny arsenal, NJ to perform engineering tests of the Arena Associates Steel Reinforced Plastic Pallet to assess potential for passing MIL-STD-1660, Military Standard Design Criteria for Ammunition Unit Loads. The 44- by 54-inch steel reinforced plastic pallet was subjected to an engineering test to assess the potential for this pallet design material to pass final MIL-STD-1660 testing. Results of the testing indicate that the pallet, if redesigned to meet Army standards increased capacity to 4, 000 pounds, double-wing design, etc. would have high probability of passing final MIL-STD-1660 testing.
