3000th MSIAC Technical Question

Since MSIAC was established in 1991 as the NATO IM Information Center (NIMIC), one of our core services to our member nations has been the answering of technical questions. Over the last 30 years, over 3,000 technical questions have been received from our member nations on a wide range of topics related to munitions safety; our answers to these questions have not only proved of use to the requesting nation, but have also helped to shape and influence the wider munitions safety community.
To mark the occasion of our 3,000th technical question, the MSIAC staff have answered a special technical question posed by Dr Brian Fuchs (MSIAC Steering Committee Chairman), exploring the trends in the technical questions received and answered over the last 30 years; the importance of this service to the technical community; and our predictions for the next 3,000 questions. You can read our response in the attached document.
