Abstract : The U.S. Army Defense Ammunition Center and School (USADACS), Validation Engineering Division (SMCAC-DEV), was tasked by U.S. Army Armament, Munitions and Chemical Command (AMCCOM) to perform leak integrity tests on two SSCs joined together. These tests were conducted following modification of the SSC flanges so the two units could be joined together. These modified SSCs will be used as a second overpack for leaking M55 chemical rockets. This report contains results of the tests conducted. p3
