Abstract : An Insensitive Munitions (IM) policy described in DI(G) LOG 07-10, is being implemented by the Australian Defence Organisation. DSTO was tasked to develop a methodology to assess the cost-benefits afforded by the introduction of IM, which is a critical component in the implementation of this policy. As part of this task, it is being applied to two munitions to refine and validate the methodology. This report describes a questionnaire devised to obtain input data for the estimation of the cost-benefit afforded by the introduction of an insensitive variant of the Mk82 HE General Purpose Bomb. It may be used as an example of a questionnaire to obtain similar types of data for other studies.
