After a three-year transition period that started in 1988, NIMIC was formally established in 1991 as an Information Analysis Center (IAC) dedicated to Insensitive Munitions. Over the years NIMIC has effectively supported the development and implementation of IM technologies.
As a response to the recommendations from the NIMIC Cost and Benefits Analysis workshop (Sweden, June 2001), NIMIC completed the development of the Cost Benefit Analysis Model (CBAM). The purpose of CBAM is to aid in the assessment of the costs and benefits of introducing IM into service.

The NATO Insensitive Munitions Information Center sponsored a two-part workshop under the title "Assessing the Risk and the Cost Benefits associated with the Introduction of IM". This paper focuses on the second part of the workshop entitled Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA).
