Abstract:

The Naval Weapons Handling Center, WPNSTA Earle was tasked to design, develop and document a shipping and storage container for the HARPOON, Control Section, Boattail. As a result of this request a prototype container was fabricated and tested in accordance with specification XAS 4315. The primary objective of the tests was to evaluate the adequacy of the container in providing protection for a packaged HARPOON, Control Section, Boattail. The tests conducted simulated rough handling treatment as may be encountered during fleet shipment.
