STANAG 4375 – Review of Safety Drop Heights

Introduction
 
The continued applicability of the Safety Drop Test described in STANAG 4375 has been discussed in light of increasing potential drop heights that ammunition and explosives are exposed to throughout the lifecycle, particularly in the naval environment.
 
As agreed at the Fall 2018 AC/326 SG/B and Main Group meetings, MSIAC have developed this survey to better understand the current safety drop height requirements for naval vessels and other scenarios for NATO nations.
 
The results of this survey will be used by the Custodians of STANAG 4375 to inform the next update of that standard.
 
Any question regarding this survey or related comments can be directed to Matt Ferran (MSIAC TSO Munition Systems): m.ferran@msiac.nato.int
 
Timing
 
In order to allow time for analysis of results before the Fall 2019 AC/326 SG/B meeting, it is requested that responses to this survey are provided by 31st July 2019.
