Abstract:

Qualification tests were performed to determine whether the in-service Sonobuoy Overpack and Sonobuoy Launch Container SLC could be utilized to contain properly dunnaged solid type hazardous materials weighing up to a gross weight of 37 pounds and 32 pounds, respectively. The tests were conducted in accordance with Performance Oriented Packaging POP requirements specified by the United Nations Recommendations on the Transportation of Dangerous Goods and the Department of Transportations Title 49 CFR and the Final Rulings published in the Federal Register Volume 55 on 21 December 1990. The container has conformed to the POP performance requirements i.e., the container successfully retained its contents throughout the specified tests.
