Abstract : This study examines the economics and qualitative decision factors which would support a decision to replace existing aboveground ammunition storage facilities with underground ammunition storage facilities at eight U.S. Army installations in the United States. The MTA Team of researchers visited the installations and noted the condition and operational status of the ammunition facilities. The Team evaluated shortfalls in storage capacity, safety, security, or other management functions at the existing storage site through frank discussions with ammunition managers, Quality Assurance Specialists Ammunition Surveillance (QASAS), and representatives of the Director of Logistics and the Director of Public Works.
