Abstract : The CNU-263/E containers are environmentally sealed with a humidity indicator, desiccant port, and a pressure relief valve. the containers are designed to protect one AGM-65A/B/C/D all-up-round Maverick missile during world-wide shipment, storage, and handling. The containers will also be used for one missile without the guidance unit and for one missile without the guidance unit and the hydraulic actuation system. The test plan used for the container was derived from United Nation (UN) Standard (Ref. ICAD 4.3), Un 'Transport of Dangerous Goods', and DOD Hazardous Materials packaging Test Plan. Results of the tests conducted on the containers were acceptable. The containers did successfully pass the POP tests, as prescribed by the UN test criteria. (FR)
