By National Research Council, Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences, Board on Army Science and Technology, Committee to Review Assembled Chemical Weapons Alternatives Program Detonation Technologies

The Army's skill to fulfill public and congressional calls for to damage expeditiously the entire U.S. declared chemical guns will be more desirable by way of the choice and acquisition of applicable explosive destruction applied sciences (EDTs) to enhance the most applied sciences for use to break the chemical guns presently on the Blue Grass military Depot (BGAD) in Kentucky and the Pueblo Chemical Depot (PCD) in Colorado. the military is thinking about 4 EDTs for the destruction of chemical guns: 3 from inner most area owners, and a fourth, Army-developed explosive destruction approach (EDS). This booklet updates previous reviews of those applied sciences, in addition to the other workable detonation applied sciences, in line with numerous concerns together with strategy adulthood, approach efficacy, strategy throughput, strategy safeguard, public and regulatory acceptability, and secondary waste concerns, between others. It additionally presents exact details on all of the specifications at BGAD and PCD and premiums all the current appropriate EDTs plus the Army's EDS with admire to how good it satisfies those necessities.

The evaluations are to include process maturity, process efficacy, process throughput rate, process safety, public and regulatory acceptability, secondary waste issues, destruction verification capability, and process flexibility. Obtain detailed information on the identified requirements involving prospective EDT usage at Pueblo and Blue Grass. Rank each of the three detonation technologies and the EDS with respect to satisfying these requirements and recommend a preferred technology. During the study, the committee was also asked by PMACWA to include the committee’s thoughts on design changes and upgrades that could allow the technologies to be better able to process a large number of rounds, on the order of 15,000, in a reasonable amount of time.
