The aim of this one 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 aim of this one day technical meeting on the “Insensitive Munitions and Hazard Classification Harmonisation” is to solicit input form the IM and HC communities for this effort. Progress to date will be presented, feedback will be sought, and there will be the opportunity to provide your input into this effort.
On behalf of the CNAD Ammunition Safety Group, the NATO Munitions Safety Information Analysis Centre (MSIAC) and the UK Defence Ordnance Safety Group (DOSG) are pleased to announce a workshop to establish the scope for the NATO Smart Defence Initiative (SDI) on Integrated Munitions Health Management (IMHM).
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.
