The Explosive Development Facility, which consolidates small-scale sensitivity diagnostics & research into one area, & includes: 2 instrumented 10 lbs experimental chambers, on site dark room facilities with an automatic radiographic film developing, explosive preparation rooms, three 100 lbs magazines on site. The location of the building, with a doorway connecting the Explosive Development Facility to the EWD offices, guarantees close ties to EWD's renowned explosive chemists, physicists, computer modelers & warhead designers. Picatinny Arsenal Small Scale Explosive Experimental Sites close ties to other ARDEC explosive preparation facilities & explosive sites provide for the fabrication (casting, pressing and machining) of explosives and associated parts as well as large-scale explosive detonation sites. The support available from these groups allows rapid experimental modifications and diagnostics making ARDEC a unique one-stop location to answer explosive & warhead questions.
