Abstract
The Navy is imposing weight limits on the Cooperative Engagement (CeC) Program, the electronic equipment racks presently used by the Navy are very heavy and expensive to produce, this Program will develop a lightweight rack which will meet the operational requirements and be less expensive to product. Military systems are becoming increasingly complex and have to meet a larger arra of requirements this means more equipment leading to the need to reduce weight where ever possible, the electronic equipment enclosure is a very good candidate for weight reduction and a rugged lightweight fully qualified enclosure will find wide general application for other Navy program and rugged tactical shelter applications. Due to restricted budgets and short time frames it is not always Possible to design and qualify a new enclosure to meet the specific requirements for a new Program, the modular design for the now enclosure will solve this problem since the basic structure will be qualified under this program qualification for future programs will be by similarity, therefore additional expensive testing will not be required.
