• Critical information on emerging explosives, propellants, and projectiles for missiles, naval guns, artillery, mortar rockets, IEDs, bullets, mines, grenades, and more
• Key research concerning interior, exterior, and terminal ballistics
• Data on explosive mechanics, launch dynamics, vulnerability, and survivability, including body armors and vehicle protection


This edited two-volume book contains 280 papers offering valuable research into explosives, projectiles, and devices for military and defense applications. Information is given on the design, trajectories, tested performance, and modeling of large-scale projectiles such as missile warheads, bombs and artillery shells to smaller ones like mortar rockets, IEDs, and cartridges. The book offers original data on explosion dynamics, as well as emerging methods for personnel, vehicle, and infrastructure protection, including new types of body armor and penetration-resistant composites, fibers, and metal alloys. Advances are discussed regarding supercavitating vehicles, electromagnetic launchers, additive manufacturing of energetic materials, and jet penetration.

Papers in this text were presented at a symposium organized by the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) with the International Ballistics Society (IBS).
