Abstract : Technological advanced in propulsion system design and corresponding demands for more energetic igniter materials have pressed the capacity of rocket igniter manufacturing facilities at the Naval Ordnance Station, Indian Head. A survey of operations was made and methods of enhancing space utilization and safety were evaluated. The vented suppressive shielding technology was selected. Application of this technology permits handling of increased pyrotechnic quantity and reduces non-productive personnel movement with improved safety. Design considerations and testing results are presented.
