Abstract: A sampling of floor sweepings taken from Building 1107 of the Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG) was provided for analysis with the request that it be examined for the presence of energetic materials. An analysis was performed using a desorption/pyrolysis-gas chromatography-mass spectroscopy (GC-MS) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). No evidence of the presence of energetic materials in the sample was found.
