ARMAMENTS DIVISION

Chair

David E. Broden

Broden Resource Solutions

Mission:

To provide a forum for industry, government and the military services to address issues which ensure a superior armament system capability today and in the future. Division themes link to Defense Department initiatives, as well as identify needed change. The division emphasis is understanding needs, listening to lessons learned and after-action reports and providing responsive technology and system solutions to the warfighter.

The division addresses many topics including: armament and concepts, system integration, weapons, munitions, fire control, ancillary equipment, logistic support, and manufacturing. Attention is given to total systems, technological application and state-of-the-art technological advancements. Committees within the division perform assessments of current armaments and related platform integration.

The division's activity is directed through two committees--the Small Arms Committee, chaired by Brian Berger (SNC Technologies) and the Gun and Missile Systems Committee, chaired by Mike Till (NSWC).

The annual technical meeting of each committee provides a forum for presentation and discussion of armament systems, system platform integration, development and deployment, status, technologies, operational lessons learned, and new objectives or needs. The approach is to be inclusive of emerging trends and technology to ensure a vision of the future and to encourage discussion. The use of panel discussions to address priority and challenging topics with diverse opinions provides in-depth analysis. These meetings are complimented by hardware displays and live-fire demonstrations, and provide hands on assessment of topics of interest.

BALLISTICS DIVISION

Chair

Jack Riegel

Riegel Consulting

Mission:

The mission of the Ballistics Division is to promote the exchange of technical information regarding interior, transitional, exterior, and terminal ballistics as well as warhead performance. Emphasis is both on research results and the application of theories and concepts to the design, development and evaluation of weapon systems and their performance against materiel such as armor and other potential targets. First-principles physics-based models to support research activities as well as practical engineering models are of interest.

The Ballistics Division's executive board, whose membership includes world-class U.S. ballisticians, organizes and conducts the widely attended, U.S.-based, unclassified, International Ballistics Symposia, at three-year intervals. They are assisted in this effort by world-class ballisticians from more than 24 countries, who also report on their own current unclassified work in ballistics and in many cases; assist in the paper selection process.

The Ballistics Division also supports the International Ballistics Committee in the organization of the off-shore international ballistics symposia. The Ballistics Division works jointly with the NDIA's Bomb and Warhead Division to organize an Annual Joint Classified Ballistics Symposium (Secret--U.S. Only).
