This Glossary contains the specialist acronyms, terms and their definitions related to the work of the NATO Group on Safety and Suitability for Service of Munitions and Explosives AC310. This work encompasses - munitions, explosives and munition-weapon interfaces, - safety and suitability for service S3 thereof and - related topics concerning the work of AC310, but excludes nuclear, biological and chemical weapons This Glossary complements the NATO Glossary of Terms and Definitions, AAP-6, which lists terms and definitions of general application in NATO documents. The NATO terminology policy as laid down in AAP-6 and the guidance from the NATO Terminology Coordinator November 1997 has been followed as possible. The terminology existing in internationally agreed glossaries, in particular AAP-6 and further the AC310 and other NATO publications has been applied as much as possible without any change. Nevertheless, in some cases, adaptation has been necessary to avoid contradictions and to comply with the terminology rules. Other publications have also been consulted see Annex D. Abbreviations, terms and definitions included in this Glossary are not classified.
