The Human Engineering Laboratory HEL, in concert with the Project Manager, Ammunition Logistics PM A MMOLOG, is in the process of evaluating the Palletized Loading System PLS in the role of an ammunition carrier. As part of this evaluation, a development Hooklift interface Kit HIK will be used to upload a standard 8 x 8 x 20 IOS International Organization for Standardization container loaded with ammunition onto a PLS vehicle without the use of the current PLS flatrack. This report presents an engineering stress analysis of the forces exerted on the container as the container is transferred from the ground to the bed of the PLS vehicle.
