SPECIALIST GLOSSARY OF TERMS AND DEFINITIONS ON AMMUNITION SAFETY
|Publication Date:||28 October 2009|
This Glossary contains the specialist acronyms, terms and their definitions related to the work of the NATO Group on Ammunition Safety (AC/326). This work encompasses:
- safety of energetic materials, initiation systems and munition systems,
- ammunition transportation, storage, disposal and operational safety and
- related topics concerning the work of AC/326,
but excludes nuclear, biological and chemical weapons.
This Glossary complements the NATO Glossary of Terms and Definitions, AAP-6, which lists terms and definitions of general application in NATO documents. The NATO terminology policy as laid down in AAP-6 and the guidance from the NATO Terminology Coordinator has been followed as much as possible.
The terminology existing in internationally agreed glossaries, in particular AAP-6 and further the AC/326 and other NATO publications has been applied as much as possible without any change. Nevertheless, in some cases, adaptation has been necessary to avoid contradictions and to comply with the terminology rules.
Abbreviations, terms and definitions included in this Glossary are not classified.
