The Secure Luggage Container was developed by Galaxy Scientific, with assistance from Marshal and is being marketed by Marshal. Currently, the container is available for wide-body aircraft, however, a container for narrow-body aircraft is also under development.

Blast Resistant

The Secure Luggage Container is a hardened unit load device (HULD) created to contain the harmful effects of a blast on an airplane. The Secure Luggage Container is able to protect the surrounding aircraft structure from all but cosmetic damage during a blast. It is the first container to meet the Federal Aviation Administration's blast resistance specification.

Luggage and Cargo Container

In addition to blast resistance, the containers meet all current LD-3 specifications. The containers are made of a rugged design to minimize operational damage and make them suitable for daily use. Internal cargo tie downs are available with the containers. Base can be provided as "fork lift ready". Containers can also be custom designed for a particular application, if necessary.

Minimal Impact on Airline Operations

Because of the modular design, components are field replaceable with standard hand tools. Containers are offered as side- or end-door models, which results in minimal impact on the loading and unloading operations. It can be opened or closed in under 10 seconds. Please view our video clips of the explosives tests performed on standard luggage containers vs. the secure luggage container. The clips are as follows:

  • Blast with a standard LD-3 luggage container ( with a small charge)
    LD-3 Section - MPG 387k
  • Blast with a standard LD-3 luggage container in a pressurized airplane (with a small charge)
  • LD-3 Pressurized - MPG 637k
    Blast with the Secure luggage container with a full charge.
    ECOS Section - MPG 475k
