The Bomb & Warhead Division encourages the development and fielding of improved military capabilities and the defense industrial base necessary to these accomplishments. It also provides a forum for the exchange of technical concepts, design techniques and test and evaluation data related to bombs, warheads and both kinetic energy and explosive munitions of all types, including those used against armor, ships, aircraft, submarines, structures and vehicles. The recognition of leadership and technical contributions to warhead technology also is part of the division’s mission.
Major areas of concern include warhead technology, warhead/target interaction methodology, advanced projectiles, counters to active protection systems, modeling and simulation, testing innovations, chemical energy penetrator technologies, kinetic energy penetrator technologies, terminal ballistics, quantification of terminal effects benefits and multipurpose warheads.
The Bomb & Warhead Division works to:
• Provide a conduit to the community for advances in warhead technology.
• Plan and conduct NDIA’s annual classified symposium as a strong technical forum.
• Focus on the quality and level of participation in this technical symposium.
