Abstract : Aircraft palletized configuration for transport of the Sergeant M481 Container in the C-130, C-133, and C-141 aircraft were designed and tested by the Air Force Special Weapons Center at the request of the Air Force Weapons Laboratory to provide source data for 11N-B1105-1 Technical Orders. As a result of testing, it was found that two containers per pallet will not withstand side accelerations without excessive movement. One container per pallet met the acceptance criteria specified by the Air Force Weapons Laboratory. The developed tiedown configuration, test procedures, test data, and notations of test observations are presented in this report. (Author)
