Abstract:

Due to the increased emphasis of explosive safety, the Navy explosive qualification document, NAVSEAINST 8020.5, is being updated to reflect a thorough safety characterization of candidate explosives for use in weapon systems. New requirements in the instruction include an explosive aging protocol, formal explosive selection committees for new weapon systems, and insensitive munitions evaluation on generic test hardware. With increases in joint weapon systems, explosive qualification will involve several domestic and international documents NAVSEAINST 8020.5, MIL-STD-1751A, STANAG 4170, and other related STANAGs.
