Abstract:

This international gathering of the top chemists, system designers and engineers from government laboratories, private industry and academia will provide avenue for exchange and dissemination of the latest research in synthesis, formulation, system design, testing, characterization and safety all aimed at advancing munitions effectiveness WHILE improving safety for the warfighter. In recent decades great advances have been made and our munitions are less vulnerable to attack than ever before however, challenges remain. It is through the continuing work of the authors, presenters, sponsors and attendees at this conference and across our worldwide defense industry that these challenges will be overcome resulting in safer munitions being produced in our factories and fielded to our warfighters. Works to maintain an open exchange of technical information among government and industry programs and technical managers, and to identify changes and trends in policy, guidance and organizational functions that affect the development, production, maintenance and demilitarization of munitions.
