Abstract:

The evaluation of the Hughes Standard Isopod reusable container revealed that this container will adequately protect the F-16 Fire Control Radar System during rough handling situations encountered in shipment. The maximum shock level recorded during the evaluation was 12 Gs. Field test data of a shipment of the actual radar system components are included in this report. This Agency obtained 18 surplus Isopod containers and incorporated the necessary restraining brackets and hardware to reduce the damage potential to the radar components during the loading and unloading sequence. These containers will be availabe, as government furnished equipment, to the manufacturer of the radar system for shipment of production installs.
