Ammunition Procurement & Demilitarization
Ammunition procurement is one of the areas where substantial savings can be made by consolidating users’ requirements.
Any conventional ammunition may be procured, for land, air and navy use.
NSPA has in-house expertise for ammunition, also specifically for Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) and Improvised Explosive Device Disposal (IEDD) purposes, Special Forces, less lethal ammunition, etc.
NSPA arranges for the transportation of ammunition directly from the producer to each customer.
NSPA does not store ammunition at any of its facilities at any time.
NSPA has developed the electronic NATO Ammunition Data Base (eNADB). This secure online access web-based product contains technical and logistics details on ammunition used by NATO and non-NATO nations. It is a valuable information source tool supporting ammunition operations.
NSPA lets contracts on behalf of its customers for the disposal of surplus ammunition holdings, monitoring these contracts until completion. Particular care is exercised when selecting the contractor to ensure that only environmentally responsible disposal processes are used.
In some instances, materials recovered in the demilitarization process have a commercial value that can considerably offset the cost of the operation, to the benefit of NSPA customers.
NSPA demilitarization projects cover all types of conventional ammunition. Capabilities also exist to support certain varieties of special material, such as:
- Cluster ammunition
- White phosphorus ammunition
- Depleted uranium ammunition
