New equipment could save AMC millions
Members of the AFRL Advanced Power Technology Office, AMC, Air Force Special Operations Command, Team Charleston, Air Transportability Test Loading Activity, Robins Air Force Base, Warner Robins, Georgia, Boeing and cable designer Samson Rope met on Joint Base Charleston to conduct an operational evaluation of new synthetic cargo tiedowns and winch cables at Joint Base Charleston, South Carolina, Nov. 28 and 29. The new tiedowns and winch cables will reduce the weight by nearly 1,000 pounds on each C-17 Globemaster III and save the Air Force approximately $4,000,000 each year.
