Abstract:

An improved method for packaging the Mk 66, 67 and 68 Submarine Smoke and Illumination Signals and the Mk 28 Marine Location Marker has been developed and evaluated, as described in this report. The container is made of polystyrene foam, an economical and lightweight material, and will replace the present wood container. The polystyrene foam container will decrease the cost of packaging by more than sixty percent, in addition to permitting improved handling by an extensive reduction in container weight and cube.
