Research to understand, model, evaluate and analyse all types of warhead designs employing chemical energy (CE) in the context of armour/anti-armour interactions, weapon/target interactions, attack of hard/buried targets and underwater weapon applications, including the behaviour of the debris cloud. Also includes work on insensitive munition designs. Also includes work to support quality assurance of all types of warhead components. Also includes research relating to fuzing, such as microwave warhead fuzes and other types of intelligent fuze systems and arming systems. Also includes research on solid state devices for safety and arming purposes, smart functionality, and application of electrical, optical and other novel methods of initiation of propellants and charges.
