Fuel Air Explosive (FAE) systems

    Ed. 1, Amendment 1

    01 Jul 2013

There have been occasions in Kuwait involving a requirement to render safe, or certify as safe to move, Fuel Air Explosive (FAE) systems. In addition, there is evidence to suggest that such systems have been deployed and used more recently in Chechyna.

This Technical Note has been written, as an advisory document, to remind, or inform, mine action managers and field staff of the major hazards of FAE systems. The Technical Note provides guidance on the establishment of safe operating environments and procedures. It also provides guidance, (developed from first principles), for the formulation of a render safe procedure, but the appropriate technical advice should always be taken.

The clearance of FAE systems should only be undertaken by appropriately qualified EOD personnel or other qualified staff; they are not a task for basic deminers or other field staff.
