scope:

This standard provides or references test and analysis procedures for the assessment of hot gun cook-off hazards for all non-nuclear gun munitions. These procedures compliment the insensitive munitions (IM) evaluation procedures in MIL-STD-2105, as well as the appropriate system safety requirements specified in MILSTD- 882.

Purpose.

The purpose is to provide a framework for the development of a test and analysis program for non-nuclear gun munitions. These tests and analyses are to assist in the characterization of gun munitions to yield a documented record of the hot gun hazards for each gun/ammunition combination. This document provides the rationale for hot gun misfire procedures for gun crews that must deal with a misfire/hangfire (or even a ceasefire if the ammunition is loaded into a gun chamber prior to an intent to fire) involving live ammunition in a gun barrel/chamber. These procedures address a comprehensive range of firing scenarios that could be expected prior to a misfire/hangfire/ceasefire, not just the worst case scenario. This document also provides the service review organization information with which to make a decision.

Application.

This standard applies to all-up non-nuclear gun propelling charges and projectiles (e.g., which may contain fuzes, booster charges, warheads, and rocket motors). It is not possible to test all hot gun conditions; however, a comprehensive range of realistic firing scenarios should be evaluated through a minimum of testing and an analytical extrapolation of data from those tests.

intended Use:

The tests and subsequent analyses described herein or referenced are used to assess the hot gun hazards associated with non-nuclear gun ordnance. The ordnance covered by these tests and analyses... View More
