Aeronautical Systems Division, ASDVXAL, requested assistance from the Air Force Packaging Evaluation Activity AFPEA to choose an off the shelf container and qualify it for the video display unit VDU used on Combat Talon II aircraft. The container for the VDU is the same as the container for the signal data converter, with the exception of the cushioning system. A new cushioning system was designed to protect the VDU from seeing more then 40 Gs during worldwide shipment, storage, and handling. Since this container had already gone through qualification testing and passed the difference in the weight of the loads is negligible, the only tests deemed necessary were those testing the fragility of the cushioning system. The tests were performed at the AFPEA, HQ AFLCDSTZ, WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB, OH 45433-5999. The results of the tests for the container can be found in AFPEA report number 89-R-09. This container test plan was developed to test the fragility requirements only. The tests were conducted in accordance with Federal Test Method Standard No. 101, and Military Standard 648.
