Boris E. Fridman

Large Capacitive Energy Storages and Transients in Their Discharge Circuits

Boris E. Fridman is the doctor of national science of Russia. He is the Principal Scientist of D.V. Efremov Scientific Research Institute of Electrophysical Apparatus and a professor of Saint-Petersburg State University of Aerospace Instrumentation. He mainly engaged in development and research of heavy current and large power pulsed systems, development of the I&C for ITER heavy current commutation systems and other field.

Frederik Mostert

Challenges In Blast Protection Research

Frederik Mostert is the principal scientist of Defence Peace Safety and Security,CSIR. Current research areas include explosive device mechanisms, blast and protection against the effect of explosive devices. Dr Mostert has participated in a number of major rocket and missile sub-system design programs in the past and has generated over 50 international peer reviewed and conference publications.
Several tributes have been awarded to him during his career, among which are the best paper award in the shaped charge category at the 20th International Symposium on Ballistics, as well as the DPSS directors and research impact awards. He was also guest speaker at the 8th International Conference on Special Topics in Chemical Propulsion and invited speaker at the 49th Annual South African Institute of Physics meeting.

Ing. Hans Wallin

Implementation of International Ammunition Technical Guidelines

Ing. Hans Wallin is the Project Director Explosives Engineering in Cesium AB, member of the UN SaferGuard Strategic Coordination Group and the board member The Swedish Section for Detonics and Combustion affiliated with The Combustion Institute.

Li Baoming

Analysis and Discussion on Launching Mechanism and Tactical Electromagnetic Railgun Technology

Li Baoming is the Principal scientist of China Academy of Ordnance Science . He is the Director of the National Key Laboratory of Transient Physics , the Director of the International Ballistics Society and Chairman of its Publications Committee. His main research interests are on hypervelocity launching, hypervelocity flight, hypervelocity impact, plasma physics, pulsed power system, applied electromagnetic, thermal physics and transient measurement and test.

Nicolas Eches

An overview of the history and technologies of APFSDS ammunition

Nicolas Eches is a former military engineer, graduated from the « Ecole Nationale d’Ingénieurs des Etudes et Techniques d’Armement ». He made all of his career within the same company (whose successive names were : GIAT, Giat Industries and eventually Nexter Munitions) beginning as a development engineer on 105 and 120 mm APFSDS. He was also in charge of the 140 mm Future Tank Main Armament ammunition project.
He then focused his works on a more diverse expertise, dealing with transient dynamics phenomena, with two main topics of interest : launch dynamics (survivability of projectiles and their components, gun and ammunition interactions) and terminal ballistics of kinetic Energy penetrators.
He is currently in charge of the Structural Dynamics Analysis department at Nexter Munitions
