Abstract : The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has experienced an unacceptable damage rate (33%) in shipment of Station Altimeters. This item represents a cost of $344.00 per unit. Due to a pending contract to purchase 300 new units, plus normal shipments of 200 per year, FAA requested an immediate interim solution to the problem, to be followed by a final package design optimizing shock protection while reducing weight, cube, and cost.
