Abstract:

The transition to Insensitive Munitions IM is a need coming from the necessity of increasing the safety of weapon platforms which are going to carry, to store or to use munitions. This transition to IM must then bring solutions to the requirements of low vulnerability, as those established by performing life cycle and threat analyses. But this is a complex issue, which can be solved by different ways described in the paper.
