Purpose 

The purpose of this AP is to guide personnel involved in the planning and implementation of S3 assessment testing of munitions to enable appropriate evidence to be collected covering the entire life cycle. The objective of the safety test program defined by this AP is to provide data to demonstrate that the munition will be "safe for use", as defined in AAS3P-1, throughout the potential deployment possibilities in NATO service.

Application

The munitions covered by the AP include shoulder launched missiles, rockets and projectiles as defined in Section 3 of this document.

Limitations 

This AP is not intended to be used in the assessment of effectiveness, reliability or performance of a munition unless failure to be reliable or to perform effectively is deemed to represent a direct and immediate safety hazard to the user or other personnel. However, the data may be used in the support of effectiveness, reliability, or performance assessment. This AP is not intended to address S3 for reloadable launchers.
