Abstract : The Qualitative Materiel Requirement (QMR) for prefabricated airfield surfacing specifies that medium-duty landing mat must sustain two aircraft arresting hook impacts in the same spot without structural failure due to rupture of the top surface of the mat. Also, this type of mat must withstand 20 roll-overs of an F-4C aircraft loading on the 1-inch diameter hook-arresting cable without structural failure due to rupture of the top surface of the mat. XM19 special surfacing landing mat was developed for use in the critical areas of runways where these types of operations occur. The XM19 special surfacing was initially designed with connectors identical with those on the standard XM19 mat. The purpose of the appendix is to furnish installation instructions for placement of the XM19 special surfacing mat when the mats are placed in conjunction with standard XM19 mat.
