MIL-STD-2073/1E, DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE—STANDARD PRACTICE FOR MILITARY PACKAGING (09-JUL-2018)., This document outlines standard processes for the development and documentation of military 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 (DTS). For the purpose of this standard, military distribution system includes the processes by which materiel, not intended for immediate use, is stored or moved within or between DoD facilities. A decision chart is included for determining how to develop military packaging requirements. If military packaging is applicable, figure 1 will further aid in the development of detailed packaging requirements.
