Ordnance Safety & Security Activity

Providing Ordnance Safety for our Warfighters

Navy Stockpile is Old & Getting Older

Typical Design Life of Weapons/Ordnance ~ 5 - 8 Years

Average In-Service Age of Stockpile ~ 25 Years

Navy In-Service Inventory Valued at ~ $38 Billion

Weapons/Ordnance Degradation (Aging) Will Occur

Age Induces Chemical/physical Changes

Environmental Stressors (In-Service Use) Accelerate Degradation & Increase Vulnerability

Affects Safety, Reliability, & Performance

WHY QE? (RATIONALE: ASSURED LONG LIFE)

To Prevent Fleet Failures, We Must Test, Evaluate, Analyze, and PREDICT the Effects of Aging and Environmental Exposure
