Abstract : The purpose of this paper is to present the development of a new steel containment vessel to contain the explosion effects of two Viper rounds. The containment vessel was utilized in a production facility for the load/assemble and packout of Viper rocket systems. At one stage of the production process, continuity checks must be made on the live rounds. During this operation, there is a remote potential of accidental initiation, thus, a need arose to protect personnel from the explosion effects of the Viper rounds.
