Abstract:

This Performance Oriented Packaging POP test was conducted to ascertain whether the CNU-464E Shipping and Storage Container meets the Packing Group 11 requirements specified by the United Nations Recommendation on the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Document, STSGAC.101, Revision 6, Chapters 4 and 9 and the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 49 CFR, Parts 107 through 178, dated 1 October 1991. The containers contents consisted of one inert rocket motor section weighing 69.8 kg 154 pounds, and an additional 7.2 kg 16 pounds of sand. Gross weight of the loaded container was 170.9 kg 377 pounds. The test results indicate that the container has conformed to the POP requirements. In addition, due to their similarities in size and weight, this test is considered representative of qualification testing for the CNU-463E shipping and Storage Containers as per the variation in Title 49 CFR 107, Sec. 178.601 h.
