scope:

This standard covers design, testing and performance requirements of military equipment for External Air Transport (EAT) by Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard rotary wing aircraft. The complete air transportability requirements for an item of equipment not specified herein shall be specified in the individual equipment specification.

Although lifting and tiedown point design criteria for military equipment are specified in MIL-STD-209 and MIL-STD-814, as well as in documents pertaining to specific types of items (i.e. shelters and other containers), items to be certified for EAT by rotary wing aircraft must meet the requirements of this standard. Since items of equipment will also be transported via modes other than rotary wing aircraft, lifting and tiedown provisions for such equipment must also meet the requirements of any other applicable standards pertaining to lifting and/or tiedown.

This standard applies to the following:

a. All new developmental, non-developmental, and military-adapted commercial items with EAT requirements.

b. Modified equipment with EAT requirements, when modifications result in changes to the following:

(1) Item weight.

(2) Center of Gravity (CG) location.

(3) Lift provisions.

(4) Projected frontal area.

Metric equivalents shall conform to FED-STD-376.
