Abstract : An OO-ALC/MMW (presently OO-ALC/LIWDT) Process Action Team (PAT) came up with the idea to have a Family of Munitions Containers (FMC) of three to six containers to replace most of the Air Force's 200 munitions containers. 00-ALC initiated a PRAM project 21989-01 to develop this family of containers. The five containers to be developed had internal volumes from 0.5 cubic feet to about 110.0 cubic feet. AFPEA developed the three smallest containers. The remaining two largest would use pre-existing containers or be developed at a later date. The three containers that were developed are the FMC 1 at 0.5 cubic feet, FMC 2 at 2.75 cubic feet and the FMC 3 at 35.5 cubic feet.
