Abstract : The methodology and results of the actual high temperature exposure regime on an FAE weapon in its shipping container is described. The maximum shipping container temperature measured was 166F, which resulted in an FAE dispenser temperature of 130F. A statistical method of predicting the probability of occurrences of any given high temperature is also presented. (Author)
