Abstract : Management and acquisition for a family of newly configured mobility containers was assigned to the Air Force Packaging Evaluation Agency (AFPEA). Program support, along with development funding for prototyping and testing, was provided by ASD/AFALD Productivity, Reliability, Availability and Maintainability (PRAM) office. The program objective, established by HQ USAF, was to implement an aggressive US Air Force Mobility Container Enhancement Program. As a result, new mobility containers were designed to maximize the cube usage of 463L pallets on C-141, C-130, KC-135, CRAF, and C-5 aircraft for MAC, TAC, SAC, NGB, and AFRES cargo mobility operations for their War Readiness Spares Kits (WRSK), Base Level Spares Support (BLSS), and Combat Follow-on Supply Support (CFOSS).
