O-077 Rev2 NIMIC in a Transition Phase

January 2004
Patrick Touzé (Project Manager)

After a three-year transition period, NIMIC was established in 1991 as an Information Analysis Center (IAC) dedicated to Insensitive Munitions (IM). Over the years NIMIC has effectively supported the development and implementation of IM technologies.

The NIMIC Nations now see the development and fielding of IM becoming a normal part of the safety design process, and thus desire a broader scope Information Analysis Center.

Meanwhile, AC/326, the NATO CNAD Ammunition Safety Group (also called CASG) has replaced both AC/258 and AC/310 in 2003. A logical partnership is quickly developing between AC/326 and NIMIC. Indeed, NIMIC is already dedicating part of its resources to help CASG advance work on high priority activities.

This paper presents the transition of NIMIC to the Munitions Safety Information Analysis Center, MSIAC, a transformation NIMIC is currently conducting to adapt to these major changes.
