Abstract:

A series of miniature squib-actuated switches was designed and developed for the Navy by the Atlas Chemical Industries, Incorporated, Wilmington, Delaware. The technical direction of this work was under the cognizance of the U. S. Naval Ordnance Laboratory, White Oak NOL WO. A survey of projects at NOL WO early in the program led to the compilation of a list of design parameters. Tests summarized herein were conducted which successfully proved out these design parameters. The results permitted several modi fications of the switch to be released for evaluation. Evaluation is scheduled to be completed before July 1964 preliminary test results should be available by January 1964. Author
