Abstract:

Many aspects regarding range safety are baed on empirical or historical factors. The ever increasing public awareness of and concern regarding Defence activities, the mounting pressure upon existing range space and a more professional attitude by the Services towards maximising the safety of all aspects of munitions has contributed to an evaluation of the existing empirical range safety guidelines. A new scientific procedure for the determination of range safety criteria was developed under the auspices of the Australian Ordnance Council. An overview of this procedure is presented in this paper. Some other areas are examined, such as storage and transportation of explosives and the use of lasers.
