Abstract : This report presents the results of the full-scale motion base durability testing of a M1061A1 5-ton flatbed trailer. The test was conducted using the Pintle Motion Base Simulator (PMBS), simulating the dynamic response on four different APG terrains for a total of 3,600 miles. The objective was to evaluate the durability of this first production item. Twenty-two channels of instrumentation were recorded for use by the customer in determining the functionality and performance of this system.
