Abstract:

The Navys efforts to make munitions insensitive to unplanned stimuli is known throughout the ordnance community and coordinated with other services through the Joint Ordnance Commanders Group JOCG and with industry and NATO allies. Standardization test procedures, data requirements, and assessment methods are called out in MIL-STD-2105A Navy, Draft, dated 19 June 1990, Hazard Assessment Test for Non-Nuclear Munitions. This revised document incorporated the U.S. Military Service comments only. This is one milestone that has near and long term impact on weapon and ship design, and safetyvulnerability testing.
