G-MACS Objectives and Scope of Work Objectives Develop a single tool that will cost effectively: 1. Accelerate development of “green” munitions 2. Provide a mechanism to clean-up munitions in production 3. Reduce future demilitarization costs Phase I Scope of Work Compile regulatory, health, and hazard assessment constraints for munitions chemicals Obtain approval for these “green” munitions criteria from a technical evaluation team Develop a prototype Phase II Scope of Work Implement a complete application on the Web
