Contracted Ammunition, Explosives And Munitions Scrap Disposal And Demilitarization Services

New and Replace Existing Systems


Joint or Common Contract for Ammunition, Explosives and Munitions Scrap Disposal and Demilitarization services.


The Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) have a requirement for a capability to demilitarize ammunition and explosives and aids to production that have reached the end of their service life and are being declared: life expired, obsolete or surplus to requirements as well as items that have deteriorated to such a condition that they are deemed unsafe or unsuitable for further use (yet still safe for transportation and storage. Further, the CAF is looking to dispose of a backlog of munitions scrap that continues to accumulate as a result of range clearance and contracted unexploded ordnance (UXO) activities. These items must be fully demilitarized before they may be safely released for final disposal to scrap material recyclers or proper disposal of hazardous waste. Due to the challenges of shipping these items to the US and the cost of shipping overseas, these services are expected to be performed in Canada.
