Organization: NPFC
Publication Date: 9 March 2016
Status: active
Page Count: 70
scope:

This standard establishes container material, performance, and environmental tests for use in development of packaging and packing for conventional ammunition (excluding nuclear, biological, and chemical). For purposes of this document, conventional ammunition includes a broad category of Class 1 hazardous material such as small arms, projectiles, propelling charges, fuzes, cartridges (i.e., tank, mortar), primers, detonators, rockets, grenades, mines, simulators, flares, etc. However, it will only apply to packaged ammunition meeting Level A (maximum military protection) packaging classification. It will also cover those packs and items (i.e., propellant) which require fielded Level A protection for long term storage but are not normally fielded as tactical ammunition.

The Level A packaging requirements, in general, exceed the requirements of the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 49 (49CFR). Conformance to 49CFR will ensure compliance with the Department of Transportation safety and legal requirements for CONUS and international movement whereas this standard should ensure the operability and safety of the Department of Defense munitions when subjected to world-wide distribution, storage, handling, transportation, and tactical deployment.

Purpose.

The intent of this document is to supply potential packaging designers with guidelines on the material, performance, and testing requirements which will lead to a container that can be successfully fielded for Army use. These guidelines can be tailored or modified to suit particular requirements for a unique piece of ammunition as determined by the responsible design activity. However, prior to changing or altering the requirements it is mandatory that complete justification be made for these changes. The design activity will coordinate with the integrated product team, user, and/or responsible authority in identifying or changing requirements. At the satisfactory conclusion of the environmental tests listed it can be assumed that the fielded container will perform satisfactorily.
