Yeagle, Robert… October 12, 2023 - 02:59pm

Looking to put a Surveillance Inspection Building on the future plans proposal and need help finding some drawings or plans ect. Currently working turn-ins out of Conex areas with no cover from elements or hardwired lighting. We are on a National Guard Training Center with a smaller ASP with 2 AGM. Even some regulatory justification could help, just need anything to get the ball rolling in the planning stage. ARMAG has an option but looking at something of a more permanent structure. If anyone has resently built or planned we would great appreciate any advice/ information.

Matthews, Lanc… October 16, 2023 - 05:58pm

Mr. Yeagle, 

For your operation the "Mobile Ammunition Inspection Shelter" APE 1965 may be best suited for the size of your ammunition mission. Details can be found in the Ammunition Peculiar Equipment (APE) Catalog @ https://prod.jmc.army.mil/apems3_catalog/index.aspx?area=resources  This site is where you can also request various inspection equipment such as Small Arms Inspection table (w/ pull test kit), Grenade Pitch-in barricade, SAA Belt count trays, etc.

Mcginnis, John… December 18, 2023 - 07:29pm

Mr. Yeagle

Please reach out to me at NGB in the safety office. I can help guide you in the process of getting the Surveillance building for your site.

DA 1687

QUESTION SCENARIO
QUESTION

​Does anyone knows of any requirement other than local SOP, that states that the person returning live ammunition to the ASP must be on the "DA 1687"?  Thanks!

SCENARIO
Content Author… August 27, 2023 - 10:56am

Note: For Part 1, while para13-16 is related to an issue. The second bracket number (2) specifies processing DA Form 581. The form does both issue and turn in. 

Content Author… August 26, 2023 - 11:05am
This is a two-part answer, as it depends on the circumstance of the live turn-in, it was one of the lessons I learned midway through my career. 

Part 1. Normal Turn-In.(Requires a DA Form 1687) Falls under DA Pam 700-16, 13–16. Processing issues 

Authority to request or receipt for supplies. The ASP activities maintain DA Form 1687 (Notice of Delegation of Authority - Receipt for Supplies) for all personnel authorized to receive ammunition. 

(1) On DA Form 1687 (Notice of Delegation of Authority - Receipt for Supplies) submitted to the ASP activity, using unit commanders must designate unit members authorized to receive class V items. DA Form 1687 (Notice of Delegation of Authority - Receipt for Supplies) is required to have either a handwritten or digital signature (not both) for the identified authorized representatives, accompanied by the assumption of command or appointment orders (for example, class V accountable officer, brigade ammunition officer), for the individual delegating the authority. 

(2) Before accepting DA Form 581 (Request for Issue and Turn-In of Ammunition) for processing at the ASP activity, ensure the request is properly authenticated. 

Part 2. Amnesty Turn In. (Does not require a DA1687) Falls under DA Pam 700-16, 12–17. Ammunition and explosives amnesty program.
Ammunition supply points. ASPs or surveillance and accountability control teams will accept ammunition turned in under the provisions of the AE amnesty program. Individuals turning in AE under the amnesty program are not required to have a turn-in document and are exempt from the 24-hour advance turn-in notification to the ASP. 

I hope this provides some clarity. Send me an email if you need any assistance. 

V/R,
Mike Lima

​The previous edition of PAM 385-64 had a table 10-3 for quick lookup of Minimum Separation distance and Asset Preservation distance.  Since there is no equivalent table in the current 385-64, has the definition/use of these terms changed?  Thanks

Don't see it, but I do see the following which may be of use.

8 – 15. Blast tables for Hazard Division 1.1 ammunition and explosives
DESR 6055.09, Table V3.E3.T1 is used to determine the appropriate safe separation distance or permissible NEW for HD 1.1 AE based on the PES, NEW, or distance available, use, and type of ES, barricades, and orientation.

​We are looking for a reference that states FFM, i.e. Rockets or missiles, must be pointed toward the driver or the road gutter. We have searched the CFR, DTR, and individual capuldi and drawings. Or does it even matter. 


Thanks for your time.

Thanks for the input. Since these drawings don't specify, we will keep it a local policy.​

Content Author… June 27, 2023 - 07:10am

Chief Lima is spot on.......the AMC 19-48 Series drawings are the source for this data. ​

Content Author… June 23, 2023 - 07:40am
The AMC 19-48-Series Drawings for Ammunition Storage and Outloading above provide the direction of Rockets or missiles on trailers. For example, Multiple Launch Rocket System and Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System on a Flatbed: 19-48-5971-GM11RS2 - Revision 4 show them facing forward. 

Related statements from PAM 385-64

“Rockets, rocket motors, and missile that are not in a propulsive state may be stored in any magazine without regard to the direction in which they are pointed.”

“Open-body vehicles, other than flatbed trailer-types used to transport large items such as rockets or missiles must have sides that are strongly constructed and securely fastened so that the items are safely retained.”



SPENT 40MM CTG (BA30)

QUESTION SCENARIO
QUESTION

​Does anybody know of a better or different method to account for spent BA30 40MM CTGs, specially when dealing with large quantities. Thanks!

SCENARIO
Content Author… August 9, 2023 - 02:13pm

Here at Fort Riley, we have the Soldiers lay the BA30 cans out, with the lids laid out in front of the can, top facing the ground. You can fit 30 casings inside of the lid and the other 2 sit on the latch of the lid. then we can count the cans and casings at the same time. If there are extra BA30 casings, they are put at the end and added to the total after multiplying the cans by 32.

If they expended more than a pallet, we require a detail of at least 5 Soldiers, so it doesn't take them all day.

Individual Count

Content Author… July 24, 2023 - 11:58am

I agree with using the G-1 table, but if  I'm not mistaken 40MM cartridges aren't listed in that table. What weight are you using per round?

Content Author… July 9, 2023 - 08:00pm

Mr. Smith,

 I concur with Mr. Lima as that is a way to process these cartridges and possibly the most expedient. At Fort Carson they used a cover from a MICLIC tub and laid out a grid for the Soldiers to place a cartridge in each square. Having multiple "tables" allowed for the Soldiers to present 100s of CTGs for the Residue Team to inspect and count easily before dumping into a bin. 

Content Author… July 9, 2023 - 08:38am

Mr. Lima's response is how we determine most of our residue accounablility. 

We use 5 gallon buckets (pales), fill them with the residue, and weigh them. 

Make sure to get the weight of an empty bucket to minus its weight from the residue. ​

Content Author… June 27, 2023 - 08:32am

At a previous ASP i worked at, we had the customer put 32 expended back in the can. Then dump them at turn- n with supervision. This method is more labor intensive but it works.

Content Author… June 23, 2023 - 03:25pm

Mike,

Thanks!​

Content Author… June 23, 2023 - 07:24am

Other than Individual Count, not that I know. If it were small arms ammunition, then the below would apply. 

Pam 700-16 Appendix G

Salvage and Residue Weights
G–1. Background
Users may weigh expended small arms ammunition cartridges to determine if the ammunition issued to the unit was fired and if the total quantity of ammunition issued, less live ammunition turned in, equals the amount of residue turned-in. Table G-1 provides the weight for each type of small arms cartridge casing. A request for information for casings not listed in the APSR will be submitted to AESIP and will be determined locally.
