GENERAL DESIGN CRITERIA FOR HANDLING EQUIPMENT ASSOCIATED WITH WEAPONS AND RELATED ITEMS
|Publication Date:||20 October 2020|
This design standard contains the general design criteria and applicable tests for beams, bands, strongbacks, cradles, assembly stands, slings, dollies, bomb loaders, trailers, and hoists (used as an integral component of an ordnance handling device) associated with handling weapons and related items. This standard is not intended to be used directly for acquisition of related equipment, but is to be used as the basis to prepare appropriate development specifications from which the equipment is to be designed and procured.

This standard is intended to provide general design criteria and guidance for handling equipment associated with weapons and other items of similar nature and should be used as the basis for preparing development specifications for such equipment. However, this standard should not be substituted for sound engineering judgment with respect to establishing specific requirements for handling equipment needed to solve unique handling situations. The need for sound engineering judgment is further emphasized in light of the elimination of many Government reference documents (defense specifications, defense standards) from this standard in order to encourage greater use of commercial products wherever possible. The intent of this standard, therefore, is to provide sufficient information and latitude for the use of commercial products and to define those unique requirements, such as shipboard and aircraft interface criteria, that are not likely to be found in the commercial section and require the use of the documents referenced.View Less
