Abstract : This project was initiated to design, fabricate, test and provide a production drawing package for the MICOM-ISU container. The objective of the test series was to qualify the container for production release by AFMC LSO/LOP. The container is designed to hold one of three items: the Integrated Sight Unit (ISU), the ISU with BELRF, or the IBAS Target Acquisition System (TAS). The container utilizes standard AFPTEF extrusion designs and is completely designed using PTC's Pro/Engineer three dimensional solids modeling software. This is an unpainted, welded, controlled breathing, aluminum container. It is a low base design with an internal cradle system that is mounted to the base via four stainless steel cable or flex mounts. Some of the design features are humidity indicator, pressure relief valve, desiccant port, stacking capability, tiedown rings, quick release latches, air filling valve, four way forklift entry and an integral base skid design.
