Abstract : The U.S. Army Defense Ammunition Center and School (USADACS), Validation Engineering Division (SMCAC-DEV), was tasked by the U.S. Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center (ARDEC) to conduct MIL-STD-1660 and rail impact tests on prototype 40mm ammunition and 120mm ammunition enhanced wood pallets. The pallets met all requirements of MIL-STD-1660, Design Criteria for Ammunition Unit Loads, and rail impact tests; however, several changes are required to the pallet adapter assemblies prior to finalization of the unitization drawings. This report contains details of the tests conducted.
