NIMIC will hold a two-part workshop entitled "Addressing the Risk and Cost Benefits Associated with the Introduction of Insensitive Munitions (IM)". This paper describes the aims and objectives of Part 1 of this workshop.
The Threat Hazard Assessment Methodology Software, THAMES, was developed as an MS - DOS application in 1995 by NIMIC. The decision to undertake the development of a Windows® version of THAMES was approved by the NIMIC Steering Committee (SC) in 1997.
The main thrust behind the development of insensitive munitions (IM) is to maintain operational effectiveness by reducing collateral damage resources as a result of unplanned explosive events on them. IM also means better protection for the general public and improved safety in general.
THAMES 3.0 is an MS-Windows software application which supports the Threat Assessment (TA) of a munition during its life-cycle for those concerned with the operational planning, procurement, development and assessment of munitions.
