MISSION
Nexter Munitions develops and manufactures
pyrotechnic components, subsystems and
actuators. Dedicated to ammunition, missiles,
aeronautics and space applications, the
pyrotechnic components belong to the key
elements which must combine high levels of
safety and reliability whatever the extreme
and various environments they have to deal
with.
In addition to the conventional pyrotechnic
components, Nexter Munitions is currently
developing advanced pyrotechnic technologies such as:
• 
micropyrotechnics: Pyro-MEMS®,
• 
optopyrotechnics (Optopyrotechnic igniters and detonators),
• 
low-energy EFI,
• 
“Lead free” components.
