Army Propellant Surveillance Laboratory


FLC Region

Security Lab



Picatinny Arsenal




The Army Propellant Surveillance Lab is the only facility of its kind in the world. It is the DoD's lead laboratory for ammunition surveillance and assures the safety, serviceability and economic use of the Army's war reserves by identifying potentially hazardous propellant lots and having them removed from the world wide stockpile before a catastrophic auto ignition can occur. No other facility of its kind exists in the DoD.

Established at Picatinny Arsenal in 1921, ATF performs one of DoD's oldest and most aggressive safety missions with the primary mission to ensure the safety of our soldiers by assuring that DoD has a safe, reliable and ready inventory of ammunition.
