Army Sustainment Command’s Packaging, Storage, and Containerization Center (PSCC) has released the latest video in their Care of Supplies in Storage (COSIS) series, Module 6: Care & Remediation of Electrostatic Discharge Sensitive (ESDS) Items. This is the sixth video in the ongoing COSIS series.

ESDS items, like circuit cards, are among the most expensive electronic repair parts in the supply system. When ESDS items are packaged or handled incorrectly, a touch can damage them beyond repair.

PSCC’s video teaches how to properly inspect, handle and remediate packaging for items that are sensitive to static discharge. After watching the video, personnel responsible for shipping, handling, packaging and storage of Army assets will be able to quickly identify and mitigate the risks associated with the storage, shipment, handling and packaging of ESDS items to ensure they arrive at their destinations ready for use.

 The videos provide practical and easily accessible instruction to develop and sustain an effective COSIS skillset. Watch the complete series on YouTube:
