Abstract : This report outlines a suggested approach to the preparation of a life cycle environmental profile and the consequent program of environmental tests required before an item of explosive ordnance can be accepted as safe and suitable for service with the Australian Defence Force. Likely environmental stresses and their effects, and a procedure for calculating the duration of accelerated ageing trials are included as appendices. (AN)
