Covers add aviation protection!
AMCOM's Corrosion Prevention and Control Program has been conducting a demonstration/validation project for a lightweight, breathable protective cover for aircraft and Patriot components.
The covers are an advanced commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) textile that has high vapor transfer rates and shielding properties that provide environmental and corrosion protection.
The covers were tested in SWA on aircraft windscreens and provided protection against sandblasting, pitting and crazing.
Validation projects continue for the UH-60M Blackhawk, the OH-58 Kiowa Warrior, Patriot missile canisters, Patriot Tactical Control Stations, and 25-kW generators.
THE CH-47 AIRCRAFT COVER PROTECTION KIT HAS BEEN ASSIGNED NATIONAL STOCK NUMBERS AND CAN be ORDERED THROUGH THE SUPPLY SYSTEM.
THE NSNS ARE LISTED IN THIS CHART, AND ARE ALL IN SUPPLY CLASS 9A.
