Central Laboratory

 

The Central Laboratory is the Research, Development and Engineering authority of the Munitions Systems Division at IMI. The Central laboratory is in charge of all the RD&E activities related to munitions systems within the Division as well as providing development activities for other divisions at IMI (in particular warhead development). Also, a variety of RD&E activities are contracted by the IDF, IMOD and other defense industries in Israel.
  

The activities are performed by a well trained and experienced staff, comprising of mechanical, aeronautics, electronics and chemical engineers as well as scientists from a variety of related disciplines such as mathematicians, physicists, computer scientists, statisticians, etc.

 

All our activities are supported by the Division experts from the Metal and Chemical Plants, as well as the Munitions and Weapons Test Center, with capabilities of testing all munitions types during the R&D phase (internal, external and terminal ballistics tests, environmental tests, etc.).

 

The main RD&E activities are related to the development of:

   

Tank Ammo – KE, HEAT and multi-purpose rounds

 

 Artillery Ammo – unitary/cargo warhead projectiles with advanced
   submunitions (less than 1% UXO)

 

Infantry Systems and Ammunition – mortar bombs, rifle grenades -
   including air bursting munition

 

Smart Ammo- smart mortar bombs, tank and artillery rounds

 

Air to ground ammo and warheads – shaped charges, fragmentation,
   blast
 incendiary, urban, deep penetrators

                                              

Sensor based systems – small, smart mines and UGS

 

Energetic materials – explosives (including IM and thermobar), propellants,

   pyrotechnics, smokes, advanced computations an analysis tools

                         

Electronic fuses – for various warheads and ammunition

   types                                                         

 

Operations Research and Algorithms – military Operations Research and

   systems analysis

 

Ballistic Computations and Numerical Simulations – Internal, external and
   terminal ballistics, penetration models, algorithm development

 

Home Land Security – buildings protection
