SINGLE MANAGER FOR CONVENTIONAL AMMUNITION (IMPLEMENTING CONVENTIONAL AMMUNITION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES)
|Publication Date:||1 April 1989|
The Committee acts as the focal point for achieving harmonization of the Services' requirements for munitions and aerial targets. The ultimate aim is to produce munitions which meet the needs of more than one Service and, where practicable, achieve interoperability with munitions in use or planned use by NATO. The Committee interest begins when the Services establish a munition requirement or a program enters advanced development and continues throughout the life cycle of the program. Conventional munitions include all non-nuclear munitions which have potential for economies through multi-Service use. The scope encompasses guns of all calibers with their associated ammunition, guided missiles, rockets, bombs and related subsystems, plus test and handling equipment. Aerial targets include all full-scale, sub-scale, towed systems, and augmentation devices.
