Surveillance testing of missiles and ammunition (LTEX)

In the global defence sector there is a clear dividend from product obsolescence but, in turn, the high cost of early replacement places equal emphasis on effective munitions storage. Our specialist Swedish facility has a proven track record in Life Time Extension (LTEX) programmes, which draws on over 25 years’ experience in the surveillance testing of propellants, ammunition and missiles.

Defence LTEX

Explosive innovation

Our surveillance testing capabilities verify the current status of stored missiles, assists shelf-life extension, and report on the suitability of continued storage. We apply our expertise to air-to-air and anti-tank missile systems, with a particular focus on rocket motors, ignition systems and warheads.

Our capabilities in LTEX include:

  • Pre-inspection and disassembling
  • Pre -and post- status control
  • Accelerated ageing
  • Functional tests, including firing tests
  • Training courses in munitions surveillance work and in propellant testing

The LTEX Programme is available from our Swedish facilities or on-site, at our customers’ chosen location.
