The packaged commodity used for the test was two Tactical Air Launched Decoy (TALD) shapes weighing 363 kg (800 pounds). This represents the current maximum commodity weight. To compensate for future growth variations in commodity and/or packaging, 37 kg (80 pounds) were added. Gross weight of the loaded container was 654 kg (1,440 pounds). The test results indicate that the container has conformed to the POP requirements.... POP Test of CNU-536/E shipping and storage container.
