Abstract : The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) performed a detailed survey of blast containment and blast management hardened luggage container research. The survey addressed such issues as container construction methodologies employed, the status of the respective efforts, including prototype manufacturing and testing, and identification of relevant issues and concerns from a standardization/certification perspective. Companies contacted for this survey included hardened luggage container designers, current container manufacturers, and developers of advanced and/or composite materials that have application to hardened luggage containers.
