Abstract : This report publishes a revised AOC Environmental Questionnaire. AOC Proceeding 194.91 is cancelled. (1) The AOC provides assessments to the three Services and industry on the safety and suitability for service of weapon systems and explosives. These assessments are based on the results of appropriate trials which include tests to simulate the predicted service environment that the armament store must withstand, from manufacture to target or disposal. This predicted service environment generates a Life Cycle Environmental Profile (LCEP), which in turn is used to generate an Environmental Test Plan (ETP). The store must withstand this simulated service environment without unacceptable degradation, in either safety or performance.
