Abstract : This Performance Oriented Packaging (POP) test was conducted to ascertain whether the Container for the Mk 50 Torpedo Lanyard Start Assembly (P/ N PPP-B-1 672 TY 2 STD) meets the Packing Group ii requirements specified by the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 49 CFR, Parts 106 through 178, dated 1 October 1992. The packaged commodity used for the test was a simulated weight of 0. 1 6 kg (0.34 pounds). This represents the current maximum commodity weight. To compensate for future growth variations in commodity and/or packaging, 0.75 kg (1.66 pounds) were added. Gross weight of the loaded container was 1.47 kg (3.23 pounds). The test results indicate that the container has conformed to the POP requirements.
