ENERGETIC CONCEPTS

Energetics is a branch of the physical science of mechanics, which deals primarily with energy and its transformations. Energetics research is the underpinning of the development of explosives and propellants. Energetics has clear applicability to military R&D, including the development of explosives technology, undersea weapons, and pilot ejection devices. Other applications are in space exploration, fire suppression, anti-terrorism, and cartridge-actuated devices such as door openers and automobile airbVR picags.
