NTS introduces HERO, new EED and EMR testing capability
NTS Boxborough facility announced that it is capable of HERO testing the ammunition and ordnance of Electro-Explosive Devices. EED devices include bombs, munitions, missiles and ammunition used on personal weapon systems, airborne, sea, space or ground devices. HERO testing is a prerequisite of the U.S. Department of Defense for the proper development of the components of explosive devices.
"HERO testing is a niche market, but a very important market for us and for our customers that manufacture ordnances for the Department of Defense and our armed forces," NTS EMI Engineering Services Regional Director Jeffrey Viel said. "At the most basic level, we can test almost any ordnance item's electronic initiation device to prove it is safe for HERO and won't detonate (or dud) when exposed to electromagnetic radiation while being stored, transported or being readied for deployment. We believe we can perform these comprehensive tests faster and more cost effectively than any other testing facility."
NTS works directly with the U.S. Department of Defense to develop useful products for EMR and EED detection.
