Following is the impact to the PCMTEA as a result of Grumman's proposed changes:
- weight of the PCMTEA would be reduced 1.4 kg (3 lbs) and a further reduction of 4.99 kg (11 lbs) would result from repackaging;
- volume of the PCMTEA would be reduced by approximately 8,123 milliliters (500 cu in);
- there would be no schedule impact to LEM-1, LTA-8, or the PCMTEA qualification test program because of the proposed changes; and
- no firm cost estimates were available but IESD estimated repackaging cost would be about $100,000.
