Army Fuze Safety Review Board

The US Army Fuze Safety Review Board (AFSRB) was established as an independent technical design review authority to determine that an adequate level of safety exists in the designs of fuzes and safety and arming devices (S&As) developed and fielded by the US Army for all non-nuclear munitions. Items reviewed by the Board include all initiating systems for Army non-nuclear projectiles, warheads, payloads, hand emplaced munitions (or ordnance), Pyrotechnic Initiated Explosive (PIE) ammunition, pyrotechnics, grenades, mines, dispensing systems, mine clearing devices, non-lethal weapons and other ordnance devices. Items that are not reviewed by the Board include propulsion ignition systems, explosive ordnance disposal tools, and those devices that are listed as excluded items in MIL-STDs-1316 and 1911 and STANAGs 4187 and 4497.
