Large quantities of data, associated with energetic materials, are published in the open literature from conference proceedings (ICT, Gordon Research, KISHEM, IMEMTS), workshops (Nitrocellulose, New High Explosives) and journal articles (PEP, J. Energetic Materials).

MSIAC has organized a workshop to facilitate discussions on how to reduce the sensitivity of munitions (packed and unpacked) to fragment (F), shaped charge (SC) and explosively formed projectile (EFP) aggressions.
This document describes the results of an international review of the STANAG 4241 related to the bullet impact test. The purpose of this test is to assess the reaction of a munition attacked by a bullet.
The mechanical threats Fragment Impact (FI), Shaped Charge Jet (SCJ) and Explosively Formed Projectile (EFP) are recognized to be really severe because they can lead to a shock to detonation transition of the energetic materials, which is difficult to manage and difficult to mitigate. Conse
Studies on health monitoring of munitions show it’s possible to register data of interest like temperature, relative humidity, vibration, shock, atmospheric pressure ..., during a long period of time, and by using different technologies (data logger, RFID, MEMS ...).
