A requirement has developed for new energetic materials which can provide the necessary performance while meeting the insensitivity and environmental requirements now in force. This poses a significant challenge to the munition designer; one that cannot be easily met using existing technology. New materials and new ways of working can provide an answer to the need, and research in the UK has matched that in progress elsewhere in addressing the issues, though from a UK perspective.
