The objective of the Warheads and Ballistics Classified Symposium is to provide researchers, developers, and program managers (from government, academia, and industry) a forum for the exchange of information on current work related to the advancement of the technology and application of ballistics and weapon systems.
The Warheads and Ballistics Classified Symposium will be conducted at the SECRET/NOFORN security level. Attendance at the Symposium and distribution of the proceedings is limited to U.S. DoD Agencies, DoD contractors, DoE, FBI, CIA, and DHS. If required by individual presentation distribution limitations, a special session may be requested for a more restricted audience. Unclassified, public releasable papers should be considered for submission to the International Ballistics Symposium.
The abstract must be unclassified and clearly state the impending presentation and paper’s classification via a Security Classification Guide and Distribution Statement, export control, if applicable. Restricted, unclassified abstracts, presentations and papers must be assigned either a Distribution C or Distribution D Statement. Abstracts will be handled as export-controlled, non-public-release documents. Submit unclassified abstracts of 300 to 600 words by April 27, 2018 to:

DO NOT SEND A LIMITED DISTRIBUTION DOCUMENT (ABSTRACT) OVER THIS OR ANY OTHER OPEN EMAIL LINE. ALL LIMITED DISTRIBUTION ABSTRACTS MUST BE SUBMITTED ON A DISK TO THE SUPPLIED ADDRESS.
You may also ftp limited distribution abstracts to email@example.com via the AMRDEC Safe Access File Exchange: https://safe.amrdec.army.mil/safe. You should request a receipt to ensure that your abstract was downloaded by DE Tech. You are responsible for following all directions. Do not select "encrypt email message when possible". Do select "Notify me when file(s) downloads are COMPLETED".
Papers will be selected based on technical quality, relevance, and interest to the warhead, ballistics, and effectiveness research and development communities. Preference will be given to classified, limited distribution and export-controlled papers. The emphasis should be on new work not previously reported. All candidates will be notified of paper selection by June 1, 2018. The primary criterion for authorship is having played a substantive role in the work reported. Management review and sponsorship without active technical contribution are more appropriately noted in an acknowledgement. Current affiliations should have no bearing on whether an active participant should be considered an author.
