ADTCEglin AFB FL has requested that the Air Force Packaging Evaluation Agency conduct rough handling, vibration, and mechanical handling tests on the proposed CNU-179 AE container. At the time of testing, an evaluation of the three proposed types of stacking lugs was made. The container design was developed because of an internal corrosion problem existing on the CNU-180 E containers. Both type containers hold two CBU 58B SUU-30HB bomblet dispensers. The corrosion problem in the CNU-180 E container developed when cracks and punctures appeared, causing water to be trapped inside. This trapped water would then cause a situation leading to an unacceptable number of dispenser failures. The CNU-179 AE containers furnished by ADTC provided adequate protection to the CBU 58B dispensers during testing and should provide the required protection when exposed to the transportation and storage environment throughout the distribution system.
