Abstract:

This study involved the evaluation of a low fragility shipping container LFSC developed by the Navy under contract with the Mercury Plastics Corporation to ship fragile avionics equipment. The Air Force Packaging Evaluation Agency AFPEA evaluated this pack PN 15024-200, NSN 01 016 3452 to determine if it was suitable for shipping fragile inertial guidance components. It was determined that this container would provide reasonable protection for fragile items if recommended procedures are followed regarding the positioning and securing of items on the load platform. This evaluation included low temperature -40 F drop test performance. Shock levels recorded in this study differed appreciable from those previously reported by the contractor but were still considered to be acceptable within limitations. Author
