Abstract : The U.S. Army Defense Ammunition Center and School (USADACS), Validation Engineering Division (SIOAC-DEV), was tasked by the U.S. Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center (ARDEC) to conduct MIL-STD-1660 tests on PA103 containers unitized on a pallet with dunnage assemblies supplied by Olin Ordnance. This report contains test results with the palletized unit load tested failing to meet MIL-STD-1660, Design Criteria for Ammunition Unit Loads, requirements. Further testing of additional samples is required to determine whether representative pallet and dunnage assemblies meet all performance criteria.
