The first of two upgraded C-5C Super Galaxy aircraft was tested to verify if the aircraft still met the vibroacoustics requirements set forth by NASA Sept. 24, 2015, at Travis Air Force Base, Calif. Travis AFB is home to the Air Force’s only two aircraft specially modified to insert and transport NASA space containers into the aft end of the cargo compartment. With the recent completion of the Reliability Enhancement and Re-Engining Program upgrade, Air Force Space Command raised concerns regarding the vibratory environments of the cargo compartment, thus requesting the collection of the aircraft’s interior noise and vibration data to verify that the M-model SCM cargo compartment was still compliant with NASA requirements.
