Abstract : Two MILVANs loaded with 10 pallets each of 120mm tank ammunition were instrumented with Event Data Recorders (EDRs) from Instrumented Sensor Technology, Inc. Each unit was capable of recording shock/vibration for the lateral, longitudinal, and vertical axis and temperature/humidity. The MILVANs transportation cycle included travel by truck from Iowa Army Ammunition Plant (IAAAP), Burlington, IA; to Concord, CA; ship from Concord, CA to Chinhae, South Korea; and rail from Chinhae, South Korea to Army Depot 11 (AD-11) at Chon-u/Chonan, South Korea. Environmental monitoring was conducted from 27 June - 19 July 1995. During monitoring, 566 shock/vibration events were experienced that met the triggering criteria programmed in the EDR and 1,354 temperature/humidity readings were collected.
