Abstract : This Performance Oriented Packaging (POP) test was conducted to ascertain whether the Mk 176 Mod 1 Shipping and Storage Container meets the Packing Group 11 requirements specified by the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 49 CFR, Parts 107 through 178, dated 31 December 1991. The packaged commodity used for the test was a simulated ignition and separation assembly weighing 14 kg (30 pounds). This represents the current maximum commodity weight. To compensate for future growth variations in commodity and/or packaging, 1 kg (3 pounds) were added. Gross weight of the loaded container was 27 kg (58 pounds). The test results indicate that the container has conformed to the POP requirements.
