Abstract:

The MDI Modernized Demolition Initiator set will be the next generation of demolition initiators and detonators that will replace the currently used nonelectric and electric initiators and detonators. The initial MANPRINT strategy will be based on the predecessor systems and the new types of technology demonstrated and used in the majority of civilian demolition operations of mining and quarries. The key MANPRINT issues are 1 The ability of the target audience to safely employ the MDI during all types of battlefield and climatic conditions. 2 The ability of the soldier to perform operational functions to standard. 3 The ability of an individual soldier to carry the MDI Set safely. 4 The capability of training resources to meet training requirements without growth in resource demand. 5 The ability to maintain the components of the new systems.
