MIL-STD-2073/1E, DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE STANDARD PRACTICE FOR MILITARY PACKAGING (23 MAY 2008)., This document outlines standard processes for the development and documentation of military packaging, as distinct from commercial packaging. This standard
covers methods of preservation to protect materiel against environmentally induced corrosion
and deterioration, physical and mechanical damage, and other forms of degradation during
storage, multiple handling, and shipment of materiel in the defense transportation system. A
decision chart is included for determining the applicability of commercial or military packaging
practices (see figure 1). If military packaging is applicable, figure 1 will further aid in the
development of detailed packaging requirements.
