December 2000
Rodrigue Boulay (Mitigation Methods)

In November 2000, NIMIC held the first part of a 2-part workshop entitled "Assessing the Risk and Cost Benefits Associated with the Introduction of IM" in Ottawa, Canada. It dealt with the Risk Issues associated with the introduction of IM into service. The aim of the workshop was to identify a means to assess and compare the potential risk reduction, throughout the munition's life cycle, as a result of transitioning towards IM (or the insertion of IM technology).

NIMIC has compiled the proceedings of the Workshop. This volume contains all the presentations that were made during the plenary session and those that were given to aid group discussions. The presentations made by the moderators on the results of the group discussions are also given. A further NIMIC report will be issued in the near future, which will summarise the group discussions and highlight the conclusions and recommendations.
