NDIA’s Munitions Technology Division works to maintain the open exchange of technical information among government and industry programs and technical managers, and to identify changes and trends in policy, guidance and organizational functions that affect the development, production, maintenance and demilitarization of munitions.
The division is comprised of two sections, Fuze and Insensitive Munitions & Energetic Materials, and one advisory group, the Industrial Committee of Ammunition Producers (ICAP). The sections’ periodic steering committee meetings and annual meetings feature discussions of new concepts in products and processes. For example, technology, manufacturing techniques, fuze safety and means of improving fuze reliability may be addressed during Fuze Section meetings. An industry member from this group normally attends fuze engineering and standardization group meetings to provide industry viewpoints.
The Munitions Technology Division plans and holds the annual Munitions Executive Summit in conjunction with its government hosts.
