Abstract:

Results of an investigation indicate that inflatable cushioning modules have excellent cushioning characteristics for the protection of military items against shock and vibration during shipment and storage. Items cushioned by the newly designed, five inch thick, modules have experienced only 38 gs max. when subjected to 30 in. flat drop tests. One such design is functional down to -65F. Author
