Abstract:

The PWU-5A Modular Internal Spray System MISS has been designed and developed to fit ten cargoutility-type aircraft, including the C-47, C-54, C-123, and C-130. The system was designed to disseminate herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers in chemical solution, suspension or slurry form, at ground deposition rates from 3 ounces acre to 3 gallonsacre with a minimum swath width of 2 times the applicable aircraft wing span. The system is completely self-supporting, requiring no aircraft power, and includes provisions for suction filling, agent recirculationagitation, dissemination, system flushing, aircraft washdown, and emergency dumping of the full agent payload. The system used aerospace adhesive to secure all external hardware, allowing system installation with minimal aircraft modification. A complete C-123K MISS was installed and flight tested at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida. The system was subjected to the complete flight envelope and functioned as designed.
