2  DAMAS Characteristics  DAMAS Components  Examples of DAMAS configurations  Success is in the Details!

3  Vehicle / trailer with low ground clearance  Vehicle / trailer with long overhang

4 Trailer will strike the ramp toes before the tires start to roll up

5 With Approach Shoring trailer will clear the ramp toes

6

7  Tall Vehicle / trailer with long overhang or “projection”

8 With Approach Shoring trailer will clear the cargo compartment ceiling

9 The DAMAS system is the first modular aluminum approach shoring system certified by the Air Transport Test Load Agency (ATTLA) for use on USAF cargo aircraft (C-130, C-17, and C-5)

10 Each DAMAS component is designed and engineered to not exceed any aircraft PSI limitation when placed on the aircraft cargo floor or cargo ramp.

11 Be very careful when shopping around for aluminum approach shoring. There are “Johnny-come-latelies” selling cheap knock-offs that have engineering shortcomings that may damage the aircraft (unless plywood is placed under the aluminum shoring).

12 Modular Design – One DAMAS system can replace the three wooden approach shoring sets required for one piece of equipment (1 for C-130, 1 for C-17, and 1 for C-5).

13  Replaces wooden shoring (saves trees)  Lighter than wooden shoring (saves fuel)  Quicker setup than wooden shoring (saves time)

14  Longer lifespan than wooden shoring (saves money)  Will not attract boring insects (Customs/Agriculture)  Multiple Ratings/Widths 10K/24”, 20K/24”&30”, 26K/36”

24  DAMAS placed on the C-17 cargo ramp

25

26  DAMAS placed over the C-17 cargo ramp

27  “Long-and-Low” DAMAS used over the C-17 cargo ramp for NORE-DECON trailer

28  “Long-and-Low” DAMAS used over the C-17 cargo ramp for NORE-DECON trailer

29  “Long-and-Low” DAMAS used over the C-17 cargo ramp for NORE-DECON trailer

30 DAMAS placed under the C-17 cargo ramp toes for Red Horse in theatre

31  DAMAS used on the C-5

32 26K DAMAS, combined with the 10K DAMAS, for loading helicopters into the C-5 (optional pooched plate surface)

33 Detail of the optional Pooched Plate Surface

34 The challenge is establishing which DAMAS set of components, or configuration, is needed for your specific piece of equipment on a particular aircraft

35  The shorter the ground clearance the longer the approach required  The taller equipment will need longer approach for the C-130 (not so much for the C-17/C-5)

36  Careful thought should used when determining which DAMAS components should be purchased  We don’t want to purchase unneeded parts or parts that won’t meet the need  Help is available to make this decision

37  What you need to provide: 1) Overall dimensions (LxWxH) 2) Axle width or "Span" (measured from the outside of the tires) 4) Distance of the axle(s) from the front of the trailer 5) Ground clearance for the "jack stand" when raised 6) Ground clearance of the rear of the trailer 7) Ground clearance of any "low-hanging- fruit" and distance from the front of trailer
