The results of a feasibility study of the practicality of initiating a rocket motor through a barrier using high explosives without perforating the barrier are summarized. Results indicated that a variety of explosives and barriers could be made to work in such a system. A system was designed in which the design parameters consisted of PETN which is initiated by shock through a 0.1 inch steel barrier. This was applied to initiation of a rocket motor with success.
