Abstract : In the past, almost all of the system safety analyses done in the ordnance industry focused on operational deployment or manufacturing of the weapon system. Most ordnance systems see far greater use in the test environment, however, and greater safety emphasis is needed in this area. The analytical effort should focus not only on the item being tested, but also on test fixturing and procedures. An engineering process very similar to that used to verify the safety of the test fixturing and procedures. This should include classical system safety analysis techniques as well as independent senior technical design and procedural reviews. Special consideration should be given to the problems unique to ordnance testing.
