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?
ARMS, AMMUNITION, AND EXPLOSIVES ACCOUNTABILITY AND LOSS AND RECOVERY REPORTING
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.
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 DAU.edu 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.
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.
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.
Black on Ammunition, Green on Forecasting: Ammunition Lessons Learned from a DIVARTY
By: MAJ Mikhail Jackson
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.
Does anyone know how long are copies of vehicle inspections (626)required be be kept on file, is it a year or 6 years and three months like most documents.? Thanks!

Has anyone heard whether there will be guidance regarding using electric vehicles to transport ammunition/explosives?
I was asked that question recently and I have no idea; although I don't see why this would be a problem or create a hazard greater than a fuel driven vehicle...
Good morning, I am tying to find the releasing authority for the AMC Drawings 19-48 Series for a FMS NATO country. I work for Navy and since this is an Army drawing. Not much information regarding release authority on the drawing.

What is/are the standard(s) for the securing of AE loads for transport when on installation boundaries?
Specifically when in reference to contractor operated facilities?
Also, what are the options for deviation from these requirements?
-Using the following illustration:
Contractor operates a production line that receives AE material from storage and transports AE material back to storage. Some of the AE is robust, as in artillery rounds, and some is more sensitive, as in propellant and bulk explosives. Assuming that DoDM 4145.26 (DoD contractors safety manual for ammunition and explosives) is incorporated into their contract, are they required to block and brace these loads?
If the contractor does not currently block and brace loads, is a DD Form 2977 (Deliberate Risk Acceptance Worksheet) an acceptable manner for the installation commander to accept the associated risk?
If a DD Form 7632, (Deviation and Risk Acceptance Document) is pursued to address the deviation from the safety standard, is it reasonable to say that each AE item may generate a different risk profile? In other words, the DARAD for the robust item could be an exemption, while the DARAD for the more sensitive AE items may only necessitate a short term waiver, as the correction may be relatively easy?
My chain of reasoning is this:
AR 385-10, 1-4, ll
ll. Commanders of installations and activities with an ammunition or explosives mission. Commanders of installations and activities with an ammunition or explosives mission will— (1) Establish an ESMP in compliance with this regulation and DA Pam 385–64.
DA PAM 385-64, 1-4, a
a. The words "shall," "will," and "must" are used to state mandatory requirements. Deviation from these provisions requires a DA Form 7632 per provisions of AR 385–10 and DA Pamphlet (DA Pam) 385–30.
DA PAM 385-30, 1-8, e
e. Risk assessments, with the exception of deviations from AE or chemical agent safety standards, will be documented using DD Form 2977 (Deliberate Risk Assessment Worksheet). Instructions for DD Form 2977 can be found in appendix B. DA Form 7632 is mandatory for deviations from AE or chemical agent safety standards. Instructions for DA Form 7632 can be found in appendix C.
DA PAM 385-64, 20-6 d
d. All ammunition or explosives loaded on vehicles will be secure and stable before movement. Additionally, ammunition or explosives will be blocked and braced in accordance with approved drawings.
DA PAM 385-64, 20-10 c
c. Ammunition will be blocked and braced or secured with suitable tie-down straps to prevent movement.
Since this is a deviation from AE Safety standards, a DARAD is correct.
Does the operating contractor have a requirement to comply?
Yes, IAW DoDM 4145.26 – DoD Contractor's Safety Manual for Ammunition and Explosives, C3.15
C3.15 Intraplant rail Transportation
C.3.15.1 Written Procedures. The contractor shall develop written procedures to ensure safe and efficient rail movement of AE. These procedures shall include, as a minimum, the following information:
C188.8.131.52 During transfer movements within establishments, full or partial loads of AE in rail cars shall be blocked and braced so they cannot shift position
The link to JHCS no longer works (with being signed in or not signed in)).
What's the new link?
During my time in shipping munitions from Deployed base to another. There is really no guidance on how to load up and tie down munitions to go air cargo. Yes there are some on height limits for which nets to use, weight for the pallet. I am just curious if I have missed something on where there might be some standard drawings on this. I work at a CRTC base and would like to start teaching a class in this for the future ACE concept. For example there is no guidance on AIM-9 and creating a 463L pallet. I created one, but I believe there should be some standards out there or should be. Thank You for the help.
Trying to find out how I may dispose of Foreign Military Sales energetics for those countries that do not have the capability to do so in country. Any information is truly appreciated. Thank you.
The Army and Air Force Exchange is selling small arms ammunition in their
retail department. Is DA Pam 385-64, paragraph
2-11 or other explosive safety standards applicable to
the Exchange’s sale of ammunition? Should an
explosive license be issued?
