Abstract:

In support of SM-ALCDSTE, a proposed Type IV, XG3, modified Fast Pack container was evaluated. The modification to the Fast Pack involved the replacement of the polyurethane cushion material with polyethylene foam material of the same structural configuration. Test results revealed average shock transmission ranging between 20 to 30 Gs. This compares favorably with the force experienced by lighter weight items packaged in standard fast packs. Author
