Our customer sought for a reinforced military pallet in the most common footprint of 108 inch x 88 inch.
Apart from interfacing with the C-27J aircrafts 463L cargo handling system the pallet would act as flooring on which a workstation was to be installed. The workstation, a large console with all sorts of electronic equipment and two swiveling operator seats, is subject to sincere flight loads which are all guided into the pallet.
As such a reinforced pallet was specified. Using our standard pallet design as the basis, there was relatively little effort required for further reinforcement; solely the pallets many interfacing tiedown provisions onto which the entire console is installed.
