​All, I am looking for a PowerPoint/PDF presentation for how to order the fins restrainer band and EMR shields for the 2.75 In rockets. I also would like to know if there is a NSN for the fins restrain that looks like soda can without any ends. Thank you. My email.

​Anyone have an explainer on storage and handling of ceremonial rounds? 

(wasn't there a "munitions newsletter" about that not long ago?)

I'm wondering if there is something already developed that the rotating honor guard teams could use as a safety review for when it is finally their turn to fire the canon...

​Does anyone know when the next revision for this instruction is being published?  Drawing 13065801 (Combination of Adopted Items) calls out this as the Unitization Procedure, however, the Revision 5 does not show the DODIC "DA67"

Thanks in advance!

​Where do I find info on Explosive HAZARD / Chemical Sign requirement for outdoor open storage; size, visual placement  location, size, durability, same symbol upon approach and leaving (instead of 2 different HAZARD signs) and should they be reflective? I wasn't sure if 49 CFR 172.519 applies?

​Does any agency or organization have a method (forumula or algorythm) for computing storage space requirements in magazines?  I've asked depot systems and USADACs and never got a clear answer. Mostly what I have received was "there is no standard, everyone does it differently" but no examples.  Mostly what my team here does is compute the SQFT for a variety of dodics, and then divide available space by the SQFT reguirements, then tweak it for various known pallet size and cube - cross-checking againstt compatibility and type, and compare with drawings of like items  - very slow methodical, tedious, drawn out. . 

Does anyone have a formula (ie. Short Ton to CF) etc for Rough Order of Magnitude (ROM) purposes.

​Quick Question, 

19-48-4116-38A Revision 4 Contains DODIC CA03/ NSN1315-01-417-8440 ( Which the Army is still Primary Inventory Control Activity on)   Revision 5 DELETED this DODIC/NSN.  I am proposing that this instruction publish a Revision 6 returning the CA03/ NSN 1315-01-417-8440 and also adding the CA03 / NSN 1315-01-659-8706.

OR... Please point me in the direction of the correct packaging instruction for a Cartidge , 120 Millimeter, M929.

Thank You!

​TP-15 and the Reduced QD magazine guide describe the arcs for reduced QD magazines (like the CETASM and Advanced EOD ARMAG).  However, when I am siting these ARMAGS within the QD Arcs of a ASP, as an Exposed Site, do I calculate them as an AGM (K4.5 to ECM, for example)?  Or can I site them closer, like the HPM at K1.5?

​My team and I are trying to find the AR/PAM/etc on a line by line filling of the DA Form 1687 for ASP/ASA. We have the new AIN about SIGNATURES. 

Can anyone provide and example External SOP from your operation? 

Thank you in advance.

​Is there a regulation that describes how to properly fill out a 3020-R? I have gone through AR 710-2, DA PAM 710-2-1, DA PAM 700-2-2, as well as DA PAM 700-16. All i have been able to find is them saying that there needs to be one on any ammunition being stored for over 24 hours.

​During my previous assignments QASAS collected ammunition from base amnesty boxes and turned in at the ASP. Now that I'm a supervisor working at a Military Ocean Terminal how does the amnesty collection / program work?  Who is authorized to collect from base amnesty containers? What training / certification is required to collect ammunition from amnesty container?  Who can transport amnesty from collection points to base arms room for storage until turn in at supporting ASP?  What training / certification is required to transport from amnesty container to local arms room? During previous assignments at ASPs QASAS collected amnesty and turned in at local ASP.  Is an appointment memo required from base commander appointing amnesty collection personnel? A fellow QASAS said a HAZMAT endorsement on license is required in order for QASAS to transport from base amnesty box to local arms room (3 miles crossing a public roadway). Nearest ASP is one and a half hour drive, amnesty would be stored in local arms room until military police have a need to go to ASP other than amnesty turn in.  Examples of amnesty appointment memo / sop would be greatly appreciated. Thank you fellow SME.

​Hello All,

The DDR&E(AC) Systems Engineering Guidebook issued 15 Feb 22 contains a short discussion on the Insensitive Munitions Design Consideration in Section 5.10. That section references the "DoD Acquisition Manager's Handbook for Insensitive Munitions". I've done a Google search and a search on for this document and can't find it. If it is releaseable to the public, I'd like to publish a link to it in the DAU Systems Engineering Brainbook page on the Insensitive Munitions Design Consideration that I manage. Please help if you can.

​Is a DD Form 626 actually required for incoming and outgoing of inert loads, i.e.: bombfins, dummy rounds, etc....? 

DA Pam 385-64  para 20-7 says "Inbound motor vehicles loaded with explosives, ammunition, or other hazardous material will be inspected by a competent person at a designated inspection station" however it doesn't mention inert items but goes on saying the "Under no circumstances will a tractor or trailer be allowed into the ammunition area with a defect which could endanger the area or the load." Without going out to look at the vehicle which could be leaking fuel and have faulty wiring which is a defect, one would never know.

For outbound motor shipments of A&E, DA Pam 385-64  para 20-8a says "All motor vehicles which will be carrying DOT Class 1.1, 1.2 or 1.3 explosives must be inspected using a DD Form 626. Inert items definately does not fall in that category.

All motor carrier operator are required by DOD and DOT to do a pre-trip or post-trip maintenance inspection every day. Would that suffice in-lieu of a 626? I understand that Depot/ASP policies can always be more restrictive than what the regulations say.

Just curious. Thank you in advance.

​I am a former QASAS, now working for the Navy as an Explosives Safety Officer. I am trying to find a way where I can get access to the TM 43 series pubs. Alot of information in the TM's would benefit me in my current position, but seems I cannot get access to the Army TMs anymore. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
