The Schreifer Group is excited to help you meet your explosives safety goals. We expertly utilize the Explosives Safety Siting (ESS) software, have significant experience interacting with the Department of Defense Explosives Safety Board (DDESB), and are the lead developer of the US Navy Magazine Storage Requirements Calculator (MSRC).

Dr. Tyler Ross, TSG's Director of Explosives Safety Planning, has 13 years of extensive experience with DoD and NATO explosives safety planning. He has completed hundreds of explosives safety site plans spanning all service agencies and regularly corresponds with service agency safety centers (NOSSA, USATCES, AFSEC, and the DDESB) to stay up to date with the latest guidance and ensure proposed solutions are viable. The breadth of his experience allows him to bring creative and actionable solutions to a range of project sizes. A recognized leader in the field, Tyler has participated in the development of US DoD explosives safety criteria, contributing to the development of key policy and criteria documents such as DESR 6055.09 and multiple DDESB Technical Papers.

Our specific expertise includes:

  • Development of Explosives Safety Quantity Distance (ESQD) arcs

  • Development of Explosives Safety Site Plans (ESSP)

  • Use of the DoD Explosives Safety Siting (ESS) software

  • Concept design for master plans and 1391 programming

  • Charrette support with real-time analysis

  • Use and application of NATO (AASTP) criteria

  • Implementation of protective construction design (UFC 3-340-01)Risk-based explosives safety analysis

  • Explosives storage optimization

  • Use of the Magazine Storage Requirements Calculator (MSRC)

  • Explosives safety training (ESS, MSRC, general safety)

Ammunition and Explosives Facility Support (A&EFS) Global Munitions Study and BFR Development

The Schreifer Group provided technical subject matter expertise to produce explosives safety site plans for more than 4,000 storage magazines located at more than 30 Navy installations throughout the world. The explosives storage capabilities were maximized for each installation.


TSG served as the lead developer for the Magazines Storage Requirements Calculator, which was used to produce Basic Facility Requirement (BFR) documents for explosives storage facilities at each Navy installation.

JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON

MUNITIONS AREA DEVELOPMENT PLAN

 

Our team led a planning effort to provide a detailed, long-range plan for four Munitions Storage Area (MSA) districts at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson (JBER) in Alaska.

The plan considered interactions between these geographically dispersed operations and storage areas. Each area was optimized for future explosives mission requirements. Our team worked closely with stakeholders to develop mission-specific solutions for each area.

AMMUNITION STORAGE POINT CONCEPT DESIGN DRAWSKO POMORSKIE TRAINING AREA (DPTA) POLAND

 

The Schreifer Group provided explosives safety siting analysis expertise to support the US Army in creating a new storage facility in Poland. The design required analysis of both US and NATO (AASTP-1) criteria, as well as physical security for the site.


The concept design supported the US Army Europe (USAREUR) in developing a feasible, cost-effective facility plan that can be used for a design-build contract statement of work.
