Abstract
The topics of Insensitive Munitions has in recent years become a very important topic in the United States because of major accidents on US Navy Ships, with costly equipment and tragic human losses. Before going into the formal presentation I wish to present a 5 minute video to demonstrate why insensitive or low vulnerability munitions are much safer when accidentally initiated by a bullet or a fire.
