Abstract : On behalf of the NDIA Fuze Conference Steering Committee Members and the NDIA, I would like to welcome you to the 61st Annual NDIA Fuze Conference. This international conference brings together the work of the top professionals in the fuzing industry from government, private industry, and academia; and provides an opportunity for the exchange of the latest research and development on fuzing, with the common goal of improving safety for the warfighter. While the history of fuzing dates back several hundred years, and the advances in technology have been significant over that time, many challenges remain. Through the continuing, passionate work of the authors, presenters, sponsors, and attendees at this conference and across our worldwide defense industry, these challenges will be overcome, resulting in safer, more reliable fuzes being fielded to our warfighters. The purpose of the Fuze Section shall be to promote an open exchange of technical information among government and industry technical personnel, and to identify and address changes in standards, guidance, policy, and organizational functions that impact the development, production, and performance of fuzes.
