What information is available on low-velocity grenade munitions?

DSIAC subject matter experts (SMEs) performed an information search of open sources, the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) repository, and Joint Army-Navy-NASA-Air Force (JANNAF) repository briefings, data sheets, and bibliographies for related research reports, programs, and developed munitions.  Additionally, DSIAC staff contacted SMEs at various Government agencies (e.g., Army Program Executive Office [PEO] Ammo, Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory [MCWL], Naval Surface Warfare Center [NSWC] Crane Small Arms Ammo Branch, and NSWC Indian Head Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technology Directorate [IHEODTD]) to solicit information on related past and on-going research, development, test, and evaluation efforts. DSIAC staff then facilitated introductions between the inquirer and identified SMEs for follow-on discussions and collaboration.
