Information : Preparation of Simulated Munitions
While the primary function of Tooele Army Depot’s (TEAD’s) Ammunition Equipment Directorate (AED) is to develop and support Ammunition Peculiar Equipment (APE), inter-service customers often draw on their expertise to prepare simulated munitions. Some primary needs for these simulated munitions are:
Cryogenic Demilitarization Testing (both Chemical and Conventional Ammunition)
Chemical Ammunition Demilitarization Process Equipment Testing
Set-up or Demonstration of new or modified APE
Training Aids for Ammunition Training Courses
The simulated ammunition specifications often require actual weighted or balanced duplicates to be developed. Often the actual munitions are obsolete or expensive low-production volume prototypes.
In order to facilitate these requests, AED maintains a vast technical library of ammunition specifications dating back to the 1940s, and a unique inventory of inert and live ammunition components. AED has a history of providing simulated munitions to customers in a timely and cost-effective manner.
