Failure to detect areas of damage may result in malfunction of the
parachute and injury or loss of life to personnel.
If defects or damages are discovered during inspection of a parachute, the parachute must be rigger-
rolled and processed for maintenance in accordance with DA PAM 738-751. A technical/rigger-type
inspection and a pack-process inspection must be performed in conjunction with each parachute repack
(refer to WP 0010 00).
Technical/Rigger-type Inspection. Before each parachute is packed for air delivery, it must be given a
technical-rigger inspection by the packer in accordance with WP 0010 00.
Pack-in-process Inspection. A pack-in-process inspection must be performed by a designated
supervisory rigger, other than the packer. The inspection is performed to assure that the parachute is
packed according to authorized packing procedures (refer to WP 0010 00).
1. For the T-10R, there are seven intervals during the packing procedures.
2. For the MIRPS, there are nine intervals during the packing procedures.
Throughout this manual, all directions (right, left, upper, lower, top, bottom, clockwise, and counter
clockwise) are given from the riggers point of view, as the rigger stands at the tension plate end of the
packing table facing the apex hook end of the table.
