Background

NATO STB has identified an urgent need to support and develop operational capability through intelligent and advanced use of energetic materials which will also assist in sustaining the access to technical staff through active participation and sharing in collaboration with allies. This is needed to ensure that NATO can match future requirements both cost effectively and intelligently.

Objectives

The specific topics still have to be prioritized by the group in the next few months, but it was agreed that they will be drawn from the short list below: • Modelling and Simulation • Diagnostics • Processing as applied to both ingredients and formulations, for explosives and propellants. Only topics that have a potential to fill a capability gap in the immediate future will be selected. Specific, invited speakers will be sought for advanced topics in Machine learning (ML) for new energetic materials, novel processing technologies for propellant and explosive formulations, environmentally-friendly alternatives which are also provide more capability.
