Abstract:

Remote control methods were developed to disassemble 40-mm ammunition. The projectiles were pulled from the cartridge cases, fuzes were removed from the projectiles, and explosive components were sectioned. Operations were performed remotely and monitored via closed circuit TV. The methods were improved upon to increase the efficiency of the teardown.
