The feasibility of replacing a metal container with a plastic container, for packaging of the SUU-14 bomblet dispenser and associated muni-tions, has been the subject of an extensive test program. The CNU-100E container is fabricated by a rotational molding process from high density polyethylene. CNU-100 containers of linear polyethylene with various configurations of structural foam reinforcements were subjected to rough handling and environmental tests. The rough handling tests were conduced at low, ambient, and high temperatures. This test program was designed to simulate transportation and storage conditions to which these containers will likely be subjected. The favorable results obtained from these tests formed a basis for the recommended usage of the CNU- 100 container in the foam-filled configuration. Author-PL
