The U.S. Army Defense Ammunition Center DAC, Validation Engineering Division SJMAC-DEV, was tasked by the Logistics Research and Development Activity AMSRD-AAR-AIL-F, Picatinny Arsenal, NJ to conduct evaluation transportability retesting on the Joint Modular Intermodal Platform JMIP manufactured by SEA BOX Inc, East Riverton, NJ. The testing was conducted in accordance with TP-94-01, Revision 2, June 2004 Transportability Testing Procedures. The major change on the JMIP from the unit previously tested 06-04A was that the container restraint mechanisms were changed to cams which are pinned in position. The restraint mechanisms are no longer the retractable arms as previously tested. The objective of the testing was to evaluate the JMIP when transportability tested in accordance with TP-94-01, Revision 2, June 2004 for use during the Limited Military Utility Assessment LMUA. The following conclusions resulted from the testing of JMIP 1. Care must be taken to verify that the A-Frame locking pins are properly engaged when the JMIP is picked up with a load handling system. 2. The JMIP, as currently designed, is adequate to be used to transport the Navy JMIC containers with ammunition, onoff road, using a Load Handling System equipped vehicle during the Limited Military Utility Assessment LMUA. Example - PLS truck 3. The maximum gross weight platform and payload weight is not to exceed 15,000 pounds during the LMUA. 4. The JMIP, as currently designed, is not adequate for the transportation of ammunition in an intermodal container.
