Abstract : A new magazine design, named the High Performance (HP) Magazine, is being developed by the Naval Facilities Engineering Service Center (NFESC). The HP Magazine provides a better balance between operational requirements, explosives safety regulations, and economic considerations. The magazine is designed to meet explosives safety regulations within the many constraints imposed by public encroachment, shrinking supply of buildable land, especially near the waterfront, rising cost of land to accommodate ESQD distances, and reduced operating budgets to handle the many types, sizes, and classes of ordnance in today's Navy inventory. This paper is a Basis of Design Document to provide guidance in developing standard drawings and satisfying explosive safety regulations.
