Range Resiliency: Fate, Transport & Mitigation of Legacy & Insensitive High Explosive Constituents
DoD’s test and training ranges are a critical asset for the military. Maintaining these ranges is essential to enable troops to train in realistic circumstances at appropriate scales and to develop and test new weapons systems. Associated munitions constituents may pose environmental, occupational, safety, and health risks and mitigating these risks throughout the life cycle of these materials is critical to mission success. This session addressed emerging issues in known or suspected toxicity parameters, the fate and transport of these compounds in the environment, treatment options for wastes from munitions manufacturing.
