Title Validation of a Pressed Pentolite Donor for the Large Scale Gap Test (LGST) at DSTO.
Publication Date Mar 2013
Media Count 24p
Personal Author C. Wall M. Franson
Abstract The requirement of validating a new donor for the LSGT used at DSTO has arisen due to changes in ingredient availability for local donor manufacture, and also the availability to import commercial donors from overseas. A donor (manufacture by Accurate Energetic Systems) has been selected for evaluation for use in the LSGT at DSTO by performance and LSGT characterisation. The donor specifications are identical to the donors used in the NOL LSGT and a calibration for the LSGT at DSTO has also been reviewed. The changes recommended in this report have been adopted by DSTO and the test will now be referred to as the DSTO LSGT (previously, the MRL LSGT).
