Abstract : The Aerospace Guidance and Metrology Center (AGMC) requested an investigation of a potential packaging deficiency noted in packs for reparable gyroscopes shipped to their center from field units. The corner pads of these packs had shown significant compression as indicated by the 3/4 - 1 1/2 increase in void space above the top corner pads. Evaluation of these packs indicated that the peak acceleration experienced by the gyroscope increases in proportion to the degree of compression set occurring in the corner pads. An alternative pack design was fabricated and evaluated to determine its ability to protect the gyroscope. Instrumented drop tests indicated the new design would provide adequate protection for this item. It was recommended that the alternative pack design be used to replace the current pack for the CN/ASN gyroscope pack.
