  • L-257 Life Cycle Cost Method And Examples For Munition Health Monitoring

    March 2020

    Within the NATO context, a cost benefit analysis (CBA) is a valuable support tool for economic analysis for defence programs. A major part of any CBA is a sound life cycle cost analysis of all options.

  • O-213 Magazine Loading Density Detonation Estimation

    October 2019

    An analysis has been conducted to develop a method to estimate critical loading density conditions that, after the deflagration ignition of the munitions in a magazine, will lead to transition to detonation of these munitions.
