Abstract : The shield/barricade testing performed at the Ammunition Equipment Direcorate, Tooele Army Depot, Tooele, Utah, has been invaluable in assessing the protective capability of shields/barricades. Weaknesses, trouble spots, venting problems, and personnel hazards of all kinds have been brought to light during the testing process. Design changes, product and protection improvements have been incorporated in the shields/barricades so that the final tested products can meet MIL-STD 398 requirements.
