Abstract : The US Navy's Naval Ordnance Safety and Security Activity (NOSSA) is charged with the development and evaluation of Insensitive Munitions (IM) advanced technologies, managing the Hazard Classification (HC) program to enable the safe transport and storage of ammunition, explosives and related components, monitoring of the developments or trends in energetic materials, weapons or ordnance systems, ship or aircraft systems that influence or could adversely affect ordnance safety, their applications, and the safety impacts to the DON of those developments. Recently, NOSSA has combined the IM & HC personnel into one assembly to facilitate the synchronization of the IM & HC testing and application of testing requirements for each facet. This paper will present the US Navy's perspective of the harmonization of IM and HC functions.
