Ernest P. Bergmann joined Southwest Research Institute following more than 20 years of research and development and mechanical design experience. His background includes serving as program manager or principal investigator on a variety of ordnance projects, including the development of gun-boosted rockets; liquid-filled pellets as incendiary weapons; design studies on non-hazardous incapacitating munitions; and exploratory development of an advanced fuel kill mechanism. he served as program manager on two caseless gun programs in which both the gun and ammunition were developed under his guidance. His background also includes the definition and design of an armament system for an advanced bomber, the systems analysis of alternative countermine equipment in a battlefield environment, and an operations analysis of the use of countermine equipment and EOD teams to clear mines, duds and delay weapons from airfields after enemy attack. He authored a series of task reports on the asessment of the machinery noise problem in the fabricated metal products industry. His recent research includes hazards analyses of process equipment, hazards classifications of process operations and equipment, a fire and explosion hazards assessment of a deep water port and an assessment of explosion hazards of EOD operations. He is a registered Professional Engineer in Texas.
