NPFC - MIL-STD-648
SPECIALIZED SHIPPING CONTAINERS
|Publication Date:||1 November 2016|
This standard establishes general design guidelines and associated tests for specialized shipping containers used by the Department of Defense. Definitive requirements for specific containers will be defined by the individual specification, acquisition, or task order. This standard is intended to be used as the basic reference document in all specifications and standards prescribing performance requirements to be applied to a specialized shipping container. Compliance with this intent is expected through normal application of the specification or standard preparation and revision processes.
This standard is intended to be used as a guide in preparing a development specification, or equivalent, to establish the interface constraints and performance requirements of shipping containers... View More
This standard is intended to be used as a guide in preparing a development specification, or equivalent, to establish the interface constraints and performance requirements of shipping containers for specific items of equipment. It is not intended that all of the requirements or tests contained herein will be invoked in any particular case. Instead, the development specification should contain only appropriate requirements from this document, along with any other requirements which may be dictated by unique operational, logistic, international shipment, or safety considerations. Packaging requirements defined by this standard are intended to determine the suitability of packaging encountered in military-unique environments. Subsequently, defined test methods are used to simulate the high levels of shock and vibration at extreme temperatures that may be encountered in war-fighting environments.View Less
