Abstract:

A stab-initiated, hermetically sealed, nominal 3.5 second delay detonator has been developed for use in an underwater sound signal. The detonator is 0.806 inch maximum long, 0.300 inch maximum in diameter. It has passed all standard Navy rough handling and environmental tests except the Temperature, Humidity Cycling Test Mil Std 304 and the Vacuum, Steam, Pressure Test Mil Std 305. Failure in these tests occurred because of stress cracks in the end seals. Measures have been taken to correct this problem. Author
