  • Explosive Ordnance Disposal

  • An explosive-loaded tube used to clear a path through a minefield or other obstacles

  • bangalore torpedo

  • to break up or scatter in many directions; disperse; disappear

  • dissipate

  • dealing with all relevant details; including everything

  • comprehensive

  • warhead of a missile; cargo on an airplane

  • payload

  • to cover something; to prevent air from getting to it

  • smother

  • an explosive charge which concentrates its force in one direction

  • shaped charge

  • This indicates how easy it is to detonate an explosive.

  • Sensitivity

  • flexible fabric tube containing a filler of HE; primacord

  • detonating cord

  • a cylindrical detonator filled with HE used to initiate explosives

  • blasting cap

  • a demolition charge that produces a slow, pushing action to blast pits in the ground

  • cratering charge

  • a rear-loaded fuze activated by impact

  • base detonating fuze

  • preparing a charge for explosion

  • priming

  • a conductor that joins two points in an electrical circuit to form a parallel circuit

  • shunt

  • This causes an explosive to resist detonation under normal storage conditions.

  • Stability

  • A fuze located in the nose designed to actuate on impact.

  • Point detonating fuze

  • a short twist, bend, loop, or curl in a rope or a wire

  • kink

  • a fuze which has the target sensing element in the nose of the projectile

  • point initiating fuze

  • final disposition of a UXO by demolition, burning, dumping, etc.

  • DP

  • the procedure for making a UXO safe by separating the essential components of the ordnance

  • RSP

  • to eat; swallow

  • ingest

  • the perfect setting; the best or most favorable condition

  • optimum

  • a glassy, colored substance that coats metal as a protective cover

  • enamel

  • a device that holds things together

  • clip

  • a sticky substance like glue

  • adhesive

  • an air space or a hole in an explosive charge

  • cavity

  • a component of the explosive train that transmits the detonation from detonator to a booster charge. It is a small column of HE.

  • Lead

  • blasting caps that are not electric

  • nonelectric

  • In general, any explosive charge that blasts, shatters, or penetrates

  • demolition charge

  • a plastic explosive in a package of four sheets used for cutting or breaching steel

  • sheet explosive

  • when something is enough or is sufficient

  • suffice

  • to put weight above an explosive charge to concentrate the force downward; packing dirt, mud, or sand around the top of the explosive

  • tamping

  • to connect two wires or cords together either to extend the length or to branch the directions

  • splice

  • a slow burning black powder fuze covered with fiber

  • safety fuze

  • a slow burning black powder fuze covered with plastic

  • time blasting fuze

  • an electrical connection with the earth

  • ground

  • a device or mechanism consisting of two or more separate parts

  • assembly

  • failure to fire

  • misfire

  • devices used to test electrical equipment

  • test set

  • efficient and speedy; prompt and fast

  • expeditious

  • a place where two things are connected

  • joint

  • a hand operated machine which is used to generate an electrical signal to detonate a charge

  • blasting machine

  • a rough substance that creates friction like sandpaper

  • abrasive

  • a device that secures a blasting cap, fuze, or detonating cord into the activator well of a charge

  • priming adapter

  • two independent firing systems attached to a charge

  • dual firing circuit

  • equal amounts; matching or proportionate

  • commensurate

  • a tube or cylindrical case; the body of a fuze igniter

  • barrel

  • to pull out or remove

  • extract

  • an easily ignitable explosive charge used in electric primers and detonators. It transfers the explosion to a charge which is less sensitive and more brisant.

  • Flash charge

  • to stick out; project; extend out

  • protrude

  • very thin rope; string

  • twine

  • having a good connection in a joint; tightly attached

  • seated

  • a device which prevents the operation of a fuze igniter

  • safety pin

  • a large amount

  • substantial

  • a recession; the place where you put a blasting cap into a charge

  • well

  • adding strong material to something to make it stronger

  • reinforce

  • a hole made in something in which a charge is placed

  • borehole

  • an obstacle made from blown up trees and barbed wire

  • abatis

  • to take apart; disassemble

  • dismantle

  • to remove parts from broken equipment in order to make a new one; to eat people

  • cannibalize

  • the rotating part of a generator

  • armature

  • when an engine is running, but the vehicle is not moving

  • idling

  • to lean something against something else

  • prop

  • identifying name of material; technical words or language

  • nomenclature

  • overcrowded; lots of people, traffic, or other things which hinder movement

  • congested

  • the destructive force of an explosion which travels above ground and causes an increase in air pressure

  • blast effect

  • to force something stuck or jammed out of its position

  • dislodge

  • the sequence of components necessary to ignite a main charge

  • ignition train

  • to extend across something; to connect one side to the other side

  • span

  • a general rule or guideline based on experience or practice not on scientific knowledge

  • rule of thumb

  • tamping a borehole

  • stemming

  • articles, goods, or supplies

  • stores

  • easily affected or influenced

  • susceptible

  • favorable; advantageous

  • strategic
