Abstract:

THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW METHODS OF PACKAGING HAS BEEN A PRIMARY CONCERN TO THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE. THIS IS EVIDENT IN THE INNOVATIVE METHODS AND MATERIAL CHOICES THAT HAVE BEEN SELECTED FOR CONSIDERATION BY THE AMMUNITION LOGISTICS PLANNERS. A MEANS OF ADAPTING PALLETS TO VARIOUS AMMUNITION CONTAINERS IS OF PRIME IMPORTANCE. RATHER THAN CONSIDERING THE HIGH COST OF A SPECIAL PALLET FOR EACH CONTAINER STYLE, AN ADAPTER, PRODUCED FROM HIGH STRENGTH POLYURETHANE RIM MOLDED MATERIAL WOULD ENABLE A FEW PALLET SIZES TO BE INTERCHANGABLE FOR A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT CONTAINER CONFIGURATIONS. A PALLET ADAPTER WOULD ALSO FACILITATE THE STACKING AND LOADING INTEGRITY. THE USE OF DURABLE, HIGH COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH, NON-SPARKING, MBC RESISTANT POLYURETHANE IS A VALID APPROACH TO THIS PROBLEM. THE PROPOSED PROGRAM IS DIRECTED TOWARD THE DEVELOPMENT AND PROOF OF PRINCIPLE OF JUST SUCH A PALLET ADAPTER.
