Abstract:

This Performance Oriented Packaging POP test was conducted to ascertain whether the Mk 37 Mod 0 Shipping and Storage Container LD 269069 meets the Packing Group 11 requirements specified by the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 49 CFR, Parts 107 through 178, dated 31 December 1991. The packaged commodity used for the test was a simulated SIDEWINDER Rocket Motor weighing 46 kg 100 pounds. This represents the current maximum commodity weight. To compensate for future growth variations in commodity andor packaging, 2 kg 4 pounds were added. Gross weight of the loaded container was 63 kg 137 pounds. The test results indicate that the container has conformed to the POP requirements. In addition, due to their similarities in design, size and weight, this test is considered representative of qualification testing for the Mk 287 Mods 0, 1 Drawing 1516486 and Mk 764 Mod 0 Drawing 5972149 Shipping and Storage Containers as per the variation in Title 49 CFR 107, Sec. 178.601g 4, Variation 4. POP Test of Mk 37 Mod 0, Mk 287 Mods 0, 1, and Mk 764 Mod 0 Shipping and storage container
