MSIAC is organizing a workshop to exploit an improved understanding of munitions vulnerability and consequences to deliver improvements in explosives and munitions risk management. The current management of explosives and munitions risks is a broad area covered by many policy documents. These documents are based on a combination of best practice and underpinning technical and scientific knowledge.

The aim of this second one and a half day technical meeting on the “Impact of RAM on Munitions Safety and Suitability for Service” is to gather current thinking on the risks, safety and programme-related issues associated with using new munitions manufacturing technologies such as RAM.  

Discussions will aim to cover both munitions containing energetic materials manufactured via the RAM and those munitions manufactured using the RAM.

The workshop’s objectives are to improve the understanding of cook off of energetic materials and their systems. These objectives will be achieved through discussions and presentations on chemical and physical changes, heating rate and heating conditions, critical ignition and growth conditions, reaction phenomenology, models and modelling, and sub-scale testing to system-level tests.
