Evaluation of Air Transport Association (ATA-300) Container.
AIR FORCE PACKAGING EVALUATION AGENCY WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB OHIO
Pagination or Media Count:
The purpose of this study was to evaluate an Air Transport Association Container, Type ATA-300, for possible use by Oklahoma ALCDSP to package and ship highly sensitive, high-cost items. During free-fall drop tests, the container performed satisfactorily with regard to shock protection. However, during corner and edge drops, the container fastener sometimes came loose. Also leakage occurred during the pneumatic test on the container. Although this container did not meet Method II requirements of MIL-C-116, additional studies will be performed to determine the suitability of the container under actual field conditions. Author
