Information : Specialty Skills
The Ammunition Equipment Directorate (AED) maintains specialty skills in the design, development, testing, fielding, and technical documentation of equipment for demilitarization and renovation of conventional ammunition.
The AED trains a variety of Directorate personnel in the properties, uses, and effects of explosives and munitions. Personnel are trained in both explosive safety and ammunition handling. When a demilitarization application arises other than open detonation or open burning, the AED will either retrofit or design and manufacture equipment to perform the operation. The AED has the expertise in a variety of skills to develop a workable solution for the application.
The AED also provides the initial technical documentation to satisfy the Army safety standards. Because AED personnel have the appropriate safety and environmental training, all Occupational Safety and Health Administration and EPA requirements are met for renovated or new demilitarization equipment.
