Abstract : The Air Force Packaging Evaluation Agency (AFPEA) maintains equipment to perform rough handling tests for the purpose of providing packaging engineering and technical guidance, direction, and support to Air Force activities upon request. Recently, AFSC, Eglin AFB FL, requested that container vibration and rough handling tests be conducted on a prototype container for the MXU-651 A/B airfoil group for the MK-84 laser guided bomb. In addition to the Air Force requirement, the Navy requested that some additional testing be done on the container to meet their specifications. Both Air Force and Navy testing was accomplished on a single test schedule and the container endured the testing with no visible container failure. (Author)
