Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant (PCAPP) ordnance technicians achieved a milestone when they reconfigured the final pallet of boxed 105mm projectiles in February 2018. Baseline reconfiguration is the first step in safely preparing packaged chemical weapons for processing through the main plant.
During baseline reconfiguration, fiberboard tubes containing munitions are removed from wooden shipping boxes, and then the munitions are removed from the fiberboard tubes. Once unpacked, the 105mm projectiles are considered reconfigured and ready for destruction. The Pueblo team began the campaign in October 2016 and reconfigured more than 28,000 projectiles.
