Munitions Production Proof and In-Service Proof

Munitions and weapons production and in-service proof testing is routinely conducted under the LTPA. This ensures that munitions and weapons leaving the factory are safe for use and that there is a clear base set of data for in-service surveillance work.

The capability includes

  • Propellant proof
  • Complete round proof
  • In-service surveillance
  • Ordnance and component proof
  • Production proof
  • Fuze proof

A variety of systems can be tested, including:

  • Small arms
  • Cannon
  • Large calibre
  • Demolition stores

Armour proof testing can also be provided.
