Abstract : The purpose of this project, initiated at the request of OCAMA/DSPC, was to obtain data on shipping and handling conditions and determine the most suitable mode of transporting electron systems. A Transportation Environment Measurement and Recording System (TEMARS) was used to obtain shock and vibration data for movement of the systems by air lift as well as surface movement by vehicle tow and air ride low boy trailers. These instrumented shipments indicated that the major damage potential in terms of shock, occurs during loading and unloading operations with only insignificant shock inputs occurring during transit.
