Abstract:

Human System Division HSDYAGD, Wright-Patterson AFB OH 45433-5503 requested assistance from the Air Force Packaging Evaluation Activity AFPEA in conducting shock and vibration testing on the modified Transportable Collective Protection System TCPS Rowley Stand-Alone container. The TCPS, manufactured by ILCDover Inc., is a chemical warfare tent. Personnel can enter the tent, remove protective clothing and perform duties in an uncontaminated environment. Previous vibration test resulted in pole and container damage Report No. 90-R- 03. HSDYAGD requested AFPEA to design and prototype the support racks and retest the new design to ensure that the TCPS and its container would not be damaged by shipment and handling. Upon completion of testing, the modified support racks passed all tests and met all HSDYAGD requirements.
