  1. a
    cargo loaded and tied down onto airworthiness certified air cargo pallets, themselves restrained into aircraft lower deck or main deck cargo systems meeting the requirements of NAS 3610, or
  2. b
    non-unitized individual pieces of cargo, or pieces of cargo placed onto an unrestrained (“floating”) pallet into either lower deck or main deck containerized cargo compartments of an aircraft.
