Efforts are well underway to merge the three major automated explosives safety site planning ASP software packages known as ASHS, ESS and MSS. The work began in earnest in January 2009 and is expected to be completed by the end of fiscal year 2011. The project is sponsored by the Department of Defense Explosives Safety Board DDESB, the Air Force Safety Center AFSC, Albuquerque, NM and the Logistics Research and Engineering Directorate LRED, Picatinny Arsenal, NJ. The work is being executed by the NAVFAC Engineering Service Center ESC, Targeted GeoSystems TGS, formerly LESCO and Integrated Systems Analysts ISA. The merged software will contain the best of breed features of each software package and provide a streamlined, more efficient method to execute explosives safety site planning in the DoD. Once completed, the software will provide a full capability to site explosives storage, handling and maintenance facilities at existing installations, as well as the layout of combat vehiclesaircraft parking and new facilities in the expeditionary environment. This paper reviews the major objectives of the project, the progress-to-date, and the schedule for completion of the work.
