ed crusher fines finish off the perimeter of the test pad. This ma

terial is level with the top of the impact plates and extends outward an additional 8 feet on all sides of the impact plates. The DTS has been stress tested to ensure that the entire system is structurally sound and safe for live ordnance tests. This test consisted of suspending a 5,000 pound weight from the main support cables for one hour.

Upon full application of the trial load, there was no measurable sign of cable stretch, bending of the towers, or any other indication that the system was not structurally sound. Non-Ideal Explosives Testing EMRTC has played an integral part in the identification and characterization of non-

ideal and improvised explosives. The non-ideal explosives testing program includes synthesis, small-scale safety testing, scale-up procedures, aging studies, and explosive characterization testing. The goal of the program is to provide the customer with a thorough knowledge of the explosives stability, explosive power/output, and possible applications. Critical diameter, initiation techniques and compatibility data are determined during the classification testing. Other tests that can be performed include wedge tests, cylinder tests, and aquarium tests
