This project analyzes the surplus ammunition disposal process in the Bulgarian Armed Forces. It explains how the system works, and considers whether it could better serve national security needs. The end of the Cold War and the ensuing doctrinal changes lead to a significant reduction in most European countries' armies. This leads, in turn, to huge piles of surplus ammunition, which pose threats to national security, to the environment, and to the defense budget. While some aspects of stockpile management and security do have political implications, the disposal process as a whole needs a detailed cost-benefit analysis. This project analyzes relevant data, takes existing constraints into consideration, and recommends possible technological and cost-reducing improvements.
