Energetic materials, formulations (propellants, explosives, pyrotechnics), and subsystem components (fuzes, detonators, boosters, igniters, safe & arm devices) are critical to the performance and reliability of weapon systems. Applications include missile, rocket and gun propulsion; warheads and munitions; obstacle and mine clearance; flares; decoys; fire suppression; and aircrew escape. The EMTC has a full understanding of the inherent dangers of energetics and the need for special processes, equipment, facilities, environmental considerations, and safety precautions required for manufacturing.
