The Insensitive Munitions European Manufacturers Group (IMEMG), the U.S. National Defence Industrial Association (NDIA), and the NATO Munitions Safety Information and Analysis Centre (MSIAC) are sponsoring this joint industry/government symposium on insensitive munitions (IM) and energetic materials (EM).
There is an increase in applying new IM and EM technologies to meet the operational requirements in various challenging in-service environments. This symposium will address innovative IM and EM solutions being developed for deployment through all stages of the life cycle. The 2019 IM and EM Technology Symposium is a major international forum for exchanging and disseminating information on the latest IM and EM advances. This is only the fifth time the symposium has come to Europe and the first time it will be held in Spain. The European location reflects the greater international cooperation and collaboration taking place within the global defence community.
