Abstract : This task was part of the EX-114 warhead development program for the AIM/RIM-7M SPARROW to gain the Navy's Weapon Systems Explosives Safety Review Board (WSESRB) approval for service use of this version of the guided missile aboard Naval vessels. The work request was in response to requirements that all programs for the development and introduction of new weaponry into the Fleet include analyses developed by the Naval Explosives Safety Improvement Program (NESIP) and/or verifying tests (as recommended by NESIP) to insure the timely availability of hazard information for review by the WSESRB. In particular, the Naval Surface Weapons Center was tasked (funded) by the SPARROW program to assess the sympathetic detonation characteristics and explosion hazard effects of the SPARROW weapon.
