Abstract:

Tests conducted by the Air Force Research Laboratory AFRL and the USAF Force Protection Battlelab demonstrated that M28 liners installed in Tent Extendable Modular Personnel TEMPER tents ripped, separated at the zip connections, and failed to maintain pressure when subjected to blast loading by a satchel-sized explosive charge at standoff distances of 100 feet or more, while the parent tents suffered little or no damage at a standoff distance of 65 feet.
