If more than one EO workshop is booked; a discount may be applied to the final price.
 

Introduction:

Assessment of the safety of Fuzes and Fuzing Systems is a prescribed requirement within the ADF EO Safety Program (DEOP 100). This short course provides an introduction to the various aspects related to the assessment of fuzes and fuzing systems within Explosive Ordnance. The course will enable students to gain an understanding of the key requirements, as well as have the opportunity to quiz the instructor regarding specific examples/issues that have been encountered during attempts to satisfy ADF EO Safety Requirements.
 

Target Audience:

All Explosive Ordnance (EO) Engineers within Explosives Materiel Branch (EMB). All engineering personnel that undertake review and/or assessment of fuzes or the fuzing systems within guided EO. This course will also provide useful background information to industry personnel/suppliers of EO items to EMB.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Gain an appreciation of STANAG 4187 – Fuzing Systems: Safety Design Requirements
  • Understanding the EO Safety Prescribed Requirements related to EMQ (EO Regulation 5.2 – Safety of Fuzing Systems)

Learning Methods:

This short course shall involve presentations by specialist Explosive Ordnance engineers who have previous experience and knowledge of assessing the safety of Fuzes and Fuzing Systems.
 

Program Benefits:

  • Informing ADF members (Project Managers, Engineering Manager, Logisticians, etc) of the basic principles of fuzes / fuzing systems
  • Provides baseline technical requirements to all EO engineers developing EO Safety Cases for EO devices containing fuzes / fuzing systems

Content:

  • Fuze / Fuzing Systems
  • Fuze System vs Explosive Train
  • Sources of Guidance / Standards
  • Fuze Safety Design Requirements
