Abstract : This report is to document the design and qualification testing of the CNU-552/E container. An aluminum, long-life, reusable container for shipping and storing an ALQ-155 R/T unit. The CNU-552/E will replace the current wood container. The CNU-552/E designed IAW MIL-STD-5584 is a welded aluminum double wall, controlled breathing, container for transporting the R/T unit world-wide. The container passed all qualification tests IAW FED-STD-101 and MIL-STD-648 as well as a field test (shipment of a unit through the supply system). The new container will not only meet all the user's requirements but will also provide an economical savings in O and M costs of approximately 1 million dollars. The CNU-552/E container designed, prototyped and tested in house at the Air Force Packaging Evaluation Activity is qualified for production release.
