Abstract:

This center conducted an analysis to determine isolation system parameters for a shipping and storage container for the canister launched version of the HARPOON missile. This report presents the details of the analysis and information concerning the predicted shock and vibration forces on the packaged item as well as the container caused by the hazards of handling and transportation. A packaging configuration is presented, which uses isolators previously approved for the ASROC version of the HARPOON missile. Since this configuration adequately protects the weapon in its specified shock vibration environments. It is recommended that ASROC-version approved isolators be used in the proposed configuration.
