After the end of Second World War, new generation weapons and warheads were introduced in the armed forces worldwide. To keep pace with these new technological developments, strong need was felt to create the indigenous base for setting up specialized instrumented facilities and range technologies essential for the evolution of data essential for design, development & evaluation of warheads and weapon systems.

TERMINAL BALLISTICS RESEARCH LABORATORY, Chandigarh was thus formed in 1961 as one of armament research laboratory, under the Department of Defence Research & Development with an aim to provide facilities for applied research and technology development in the fields of high explosives processing, detonics and shock dynamics, blast & damage, immunity, lethality & fragmentation, defeat of armour and performance evaluation of warheads & other armament systems.

The laboratory is certified as per International Quality Management Systems Standard ISO 9001:2000 by Standardization Testing and Quality Certification Services (STQC), Department of Information Technology (DIT), Government of India. It was upgraded to ISO 9001:2008 in 2014.
