Weapons Safety and Advice

The Energetics and Weapons Technologies (EWT) Capability brings together modelling and experimental facilities to provide advice on all aspects of the weapons lifecycle; design, production, use in-service, storage and disposal.

Our energetics experimental facilities provide research, assessment and advice on the safe use of energetic materials in weapons systems.

Research underpins our scientific understanding of energetic materials and this is applied, with in-depth knowledge of munitions, to procurement issues and providing independent and impartial solutions and advice to problems throughout the life of weapons systems.

We have world-renowned expertise in high explosives, pyrotechnics, gun and rocket propellants and their application in systems as initiators, explosive trains, warheads, gun charges and rocket motors, as well as adhesives and smart materials used in munitions.
