    Nuclear weapons energetic materials science, technology and engineering expertise since 1943

    A world leader in energetic materials research, development and applications, the Dynamic Experiments Center's unique capabilities enable a dynamic, flexible response to address multiple evolving mission needs.

    Dynamic Experiments (M) Division provides expertise in current and evolving explosive science and shock physics, as well as high explosive fabrication and disposition. The Division executes  large scale, outdoor hydrodynamic experiments. We support national security by characterizing and applying energetic materials, and by understanding material response at extreme conditions to address conventional, nuclear, and homeland defense needs.
