General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems Munition Services can demilitarize and destroy filled munitions of all types up to 15 pounds NEW at our Joplin facilities. Munitions can be disassembled or sawed underwater to access the explosive filler which can then be incinerated in our Rotary Kiln Incinerator (RKI).

General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems Munition Services can demilitarize and destroy munitions containing other than High Explosive (HE) fillers in our Rotary Kiln Incinerator (RKI). If the energetic fillers, such as pyrotechnic materials are too large to be fed to the RKI, they can be disassembled or sawed under water to access or reduce the quantity and size of materials to allow it to be fed to the RKI for disposal.
