The purpose of this paper is to present the development of a new steel containment vessel to contain the explosion effects of two Viper rounds. The containment vessel was utilized in a production facility for the loadassemble and packout of Viper rocket systems. At one stage of the production process, continuity checks must be made on the live rounds. During this operation, there is a remote potential of accidental initiation, thus, a need arose to protect personnel from the explosion effects of the Viper rounds.
