International Workshop On High Energy And Special Materials

  • By Defence Research and Development Organisation’s (DRDO) High Energy Material Research Laboratory (HEMRL), Pune.
  • In association with Tomsk State University & Federal Research & Production Centre, Russia.
  • On 2nd & 3rd November 2023 at Dr APJ Abdul Kalam DRDO Golden Jubilee Auditorium, Pashan, Pune.
  • For the first time in India.
  • A platform for scientists, technocrats and researchers to share knowledge, experience and technological advancements.
  • About 250 delegates from countries like Russia, Germany, France, India etc., are attending.
  • Various DRDO and ISRO laboratories, academic institutes and industries are participating. 
  • To discuss, deliberate and share new developments in the recent past in High Energy Materials and allied technologies. 
  • Theme: ‘Emerging Trends in High Energy and Special Materials’ 

Areas for deliberations and discussions: 

  • Synthesis, characterization & evaluation of new energetic materials for various applications
  • Insensitive & green HEMs
  • Advanced high-explosive formulations and devices
  • Advanced pyrotechnics
  • Nanomaterials for HEM application
  • Demilitarization
  • Waste management
  • Environmental studies and disposal technologies for HEMs
  • Advances in special materials and allied technologies. 

High Energy Materials:

  • HEMS are compounds that either have an oxidising and a reducing group or oxidizer and fuel elements which on simulation gives out heat, light, sound and large amount of gases.
  • HEMS are either explosive, firework or propellant materials.
