Abstract:

The purpose of this third phase of the program was to design, develop, and fabricate at least three miniature electronic solid state arm safe devices capable of functioning in the various warheads of Army missile under a wide range of environmental conditions. The first output activiates a squib at a preselected acceleration. The second output has a solid state switching circuit which provides an electrical change of state after the missile has traveled a pre selected distance from the launch site. The history, the specified parameters, a comparative evaluation, the mechanical details, the test data plots, and the conditions for operation are presented. The devices have been designed under two major categories models made of semiconduc tor strain gage transducers and models made of the pressure resistive type transducer. The de tails for both types are furnished. In addition, concepts for future systems utilizing the new ap proaches are included. Author
