Abstract : The U.S. Army Defense Ammunition Center and School (USADACS), Vatidation Engineering Division (SIOAC-DEV), was tasked by the U.S. Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center (ARDEC) to conduct M1-STD-1660 tests on wooden pailets used for PAl 16 containers. The pallets were provided by Olin Ordnance and Mliant Techsystems, Inc. This report contains test results with the initial pallets tested from each supplier failing to meet MlL-STD-1660, Design Criteria for Ammunition Unit Loads, requirements.
