Research Cargo Unit

The possible combinations of cargo, cargo handling equipment and securing devices are very diverse. A Research Cargo Unit (RCU) at FZD has been developed to investigate the basic influences of experimental tests. Its mass and center of gravity height can be changed and it can be secured on the HULK by all common securing methods.
